Robert Mondavi Red Blend Private Selection Aged In Rye Barrel 750ml
$59.99 price per bottle
Our latest addition to the portfolio, Rye Barrel-Aged Red Blend brings together the craftsmanship of California winemaking with the time-honored tradition of aging fine rye whiskey in oak barrels. This results in an incredibly bold and unique sensory expression. Dark ruby in color, this wine opens with aromas of boysenberry, black cherry, nutmeg, cinnamon, and gingerbread spice, with hints of sweet mesquite smoke, tobacco, and barley malt. Deep, rich flavors of jammy boysenberry, gingerbread, cinnamon, and nutmeg, with ripe, chocolatey tannins and a smooth, subtle smoke on the finish. A superb accompaniment to grilled skirt steak, charcuterie board, aged cheeses, Kobe beef sliders, and great friends with outrageous stories. Producer Robert Mondavi established his namesake winery in 1966 with a vision to create Napa Valley wines that would stand in the company of the world’s finest. He chose To Kalon Vineyard in the heart of the Napa Valley as the home for Robert Mondavi Winery. This first-growth vineyard, located in Oakville, California, is renowned for producing some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon wines in the world, as well as for its Sauvignon Blanc grapes, from which Mr. Mondavi crafted his signature wine, Fume Blanc. Along with To Kalon Vineyard, Robert Mondavi Winery sources grapes from some of Napa Valley’s finest vineyards, including Stag’s Leap (Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc) and Carneros (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay). Mr. Mondavi believed that wines should reflect their origins, that they are the product of the soil, the climate, and the careful stewardship of those precious resources. He also believed in combining the newest techniques and technology with time-honored winemaking traditions. Our winemaking and vineyard teams are proud to carry on our founder’s mandate to always strive higher, to pursue Robert Mondavi’s goal of excellence with the same passion and innovative spirit, moving forward with programs that break barriers and open new frontiers.
