($28; includes 5% each cabernet franc and merlot and 2% each malbec and petit verdot) Good ruby-red. Currant, tobacco and smoke on the nose, complicated by licorice, mint and fresh herbs. Supple, moderately ripe flavors of currant, tobacco leaf and black olive; nicely open-knit, sweet wine that should offer considerable early appeal. Finishes with broad, dusty, slightly drying tannins. When I mentioned black olive to winemaker Janssens, she said that to Mondavi that's a sign that the wine is not jammy.
