Rather perfumy on the nose with creamy raw almond undertones to the slightly spicy pineapple and pear fruit on the nose. This turns even more floral with air. Crisp on entry with nice bright acids driving an apple laden midpalate that picks up some creme brulee and key lime pie flavors on the backend. Just a slightly creamy edge adds textural detail to the fairly bright midpalate. the flavors are a bit simple and lack the brightness of the texture, but this is so easy to drink, finishing with a lightly veneer of oak spice and vanilla. Has a certain elegance to it but is simple. 87pts

    Robert Mondavi s original vision was to produce wines from the Napa Valley that would stand in the company of the world s finest. This gift basket comes with one bottle each Cabernet and Pinot Noir from the Napa Valley and various food items.

    Our 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon comes from cool-climate Central Coast grapes and has been blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and small amounts of Syrah, Merlot, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Franc, Tannat, and Petit Verdot. The wine has a smooth texture and sweet, red-fruit character that distinguishes California's finest Cabernet Sauvignons. Flavors of cherry and blueberry, along with smoky oak and vanilla accents invigorate the palate and provide a lengthy finish. Enjoy with standing rib roasts, grilled steak, roast duck, spareribs, lasagna, or flavorful hard cheeses. - WineryVARIETAL COMPOSITION80% Cabernet Sauvignon9% Syrah3% Merlot3% Petite Sirah3% Cabernet Franc1% Tannat1% Petit VerdotAPPELLATION74% Monterey County19% Paso Robles4% San Benito County3% Santa Barbara CountyOAK AGING: 12 months in French/American OakTA: 6.0g/LpH: 3.7ALCOHOL: 13.5%

    A classic example of intensity tempered by elegance and finesse. A lush, fruity core of ripe blackberry, juicy red and black currant and sweet crème de cassis fleshes out steadily on the palate, interwoven with black currant leaf, mocha and a savory hint of black pepper. There's a refreshing brightness to the fruit from the beginning all the way through to the lingering, velvety finish. - WineryVarietal composition:84% Cabernet Sauvignon8% Cabernet Franc5% Merlot3% Petit VerdotTotal acid: 6.4 g/LFinal pH: 3.54Residual sugar: 0.30 g/LAlcohol: 14% by volume

    The rich, vibrant essence of Chardonnay: Bright, enticing fruity aromas - juicy Honeycrisp apple, citrus-laced Asian pear, ripe melon and fresh quince - are intermingled with vanilla-scented crème brûlée, subtle minerality, and traces of warm hazelnut and clove. These elements segue seamlessly to the palate, offering a lush, creamy mouth feel impeccably balanced by crisp, mouthwatering acidity. - WineryAlcohol: 13.5% by volumeTotal acid: 6.5g/LFinal pH: 3.47Residual sugar: 1.39 g/L

    Our Chardonnay possesses aromas of pineapple with hints of lemon curd, mango and brioche. Look for pleasant undertones of citrus with flavors developing to stone fruits with a bright acidity and a lingering finish. - Winery

    Offers lavish dark plum, black cherry, and blackberry aromas along with a velvety texture and succulent mid-palate flavors.

    Always consistant, vintage after vintage; full of forward fruit flavors without that heavy oakiness. In its price range the Mondavi is always a benchmark bottlingDisplays rich pear, citrus, apple, spice and mineral character, with hazelnut lacing the finish.
