2006 Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon

A book I have—it's got a stock image of a wine glass on the cover—says that Robert Mondavi is a dependably good winery. That book is so right. This is a good glass of wine.

When you're writing a paper—or pretending to write a paper—or dicking around online and maybe opening a few tabs related to your paper—you want something strong, something that will distract you, something you can savor and let your mind linger over for a few minutes. So you're listening to music (I'm listening to Phoenix right now), and you're sipping your glass of wine, and you're thinking, "Yeah, I'm working on a paper. Hey, this wine is pretty good."

Pretty good? So good. 93.
