I have neither bought nor drunk a sufficient quality of Mondavi.

At first, I placed them with the jug wines like Almaden, while I scampered about the truly exclusive wineries in Napa. Prager, Joseph Phelps, the stuff that wasn't sold at Safeway..

Foolishly, I only recently became aware of how good his wines truly were.

I was fortunate to have bought the last six bottles of his 2001 Pinot Noir left on my island. At $22.00 a bottle, I hesitated, but now I'm glad I did.

Their reserve cabs can top out to $200 a bottle in top restaurants.  You might try to find some vintages at a decent price at a reputable auction house, it is worth the risk to try it once.
