Tasting Notes

Peter Mondavi Sr., was among the very first vintners to plant Burgundian varietals in Carneros, a relatively cool region at the Southernmost end of Napa Valley. With its rolling hills, prolific fog and gusty winds, Carneros is known for producing grapes with bright fruit flavors and bracing acidity. The cool climate, early ripening Pinot Noir grapes are always our first red variety into the winery each harvest. The pristine fruit is handpicked at night and delivered to the winery in the early hours of the morning. The resulting wine is aged in French Burgundy oak barrels for 8 months before bottling. This elegant, medium-bodied wine features an attractive bouquet of cola, dried cherries and cranberries, and toasted brown sugar. Flavors of baked cherries, tobacco leaf follow with bright hints of cola on the lingering finish.
