Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Dark red color with blue and black fruit aromas and spice notes. The wine is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Malbec and Petit Verdot, aged in French oak for 16 months. The taste reveals blackberry and plum flavors with spice, not as jammy as prior vintages. The wine had good balance with lively acidity and drying tannins. This full-bodied wine finishes with a spicy ending. Robert Mondavi wines are a bargain, this Merlot is ok, but prior vintages were better. Tasting Sample,

Earthy aromas and smooth as silk and yet it’s complex. A superior Merlot.

Smooth red fruit, some earthiness, medium tannins and tart. Great value.
