Winery Notes:
Resting high atop Napa Valley’s exclusive Atlas Peak is our family's Animo vineyard - 15 acres of rocky, volcanic soil at an elevation of up to 1,350 feet. This vineyard exudes power and structure using cutting edge vineyard techniques that focus on the phenolic and flavorful cycles of the vine. With only 264 cases produced, all of the grapes were hand selected and barrel fermented in small lots creating the ultimate Grand Cru of the Napa Valley.

Aromatics of freshly muddled boysenberries, toasted vanilla and slight woodsy cardamom grace the opening volley. The welcoming notes of this wine offer an integrated structure of approachable and full tannins with interlocked fruits that define the beauty of this vintage. The 2013 M by Michael Mondavi wine has a complete mouthfeel, which is complimented by elegant aromatics and a superb lengthy finish.


Ratings & Reviews


97 Points - James Suckling:
"Fabulous aromas of mushrooms, cork tree, stones and blackberries. Spices, too. Full-bodied yet focused and precise with a clarity and beauty of fruit that shows fantastic texture. Wonderful length and intensity. A wine that seduces you now but shows such promise for the future." - (Jan 2017)

90-92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"A barrel sample of the 2014 M by Michael Mondavi was 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and offered up notes of wood smoke, baking spices, red and black currants, and hints of plum and licorice. It is medium to full-bodied, front-end loaded and very seductive. Drink it over the next 10-15 years." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (30th Dec 2015)
