Robert Mondavi Private Selection Merlot
Robert Mondavi Merlot is the star of the vintage. The fruit was late to ripen, but produced a big, full, rich wine with dark color, aromas of dark cherry, ripe plum, milk chocolate, and roasted coffee. This Merlot has a full mouthfeel with flavors of cherry pie, plum jam, mocha coffee, and oak layered over the top. Very ripe tannin for a long, silky finish. In crafting this wine, we chose exceptional Central Coast grapes, primarily from Monterey County, a region that provides the temperate climate, and moist alluvial soils that Merlot loves. Enjoy this wine with barbecued chicken, spaghetti bolognese, wild mushroom risotto, or a perfectly grilled burger.
