Mondavi Napa Chardonnay 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

A classic expression of Napa Valley Cabernet at its best: Remarkably rich and concentrated. Tantalizing entry - almost sweet with blackberry essence, it evolves into a plush, mouth filling compote of black fruit, beautifully integrated with woodsy and mineral notes, mocha, tobacco and clove. For all its volume the delivery is surprisingly fresh and supple, with a long, mocha-infused finish.

    Smooth and silky, this Merlot displays seductive layers of berry, plum, violet and spice character.  The wine's fruit-forward style comes from California's Central Coast vineyards where the grapes ripen slowly and develop a myriad of flavours.

    90 Points - The Wine Advocate"It is hard to find a better value than the outstanding 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon (which may even be discounted for under $25 a bottle). This sleeper of the vintage exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color as well as loads of cassis, blackberry, graphite, and cedar notes. Full-bodied, rich, and concentrated with silky tannins and a lush, generous constitution, this beauty is capable of lasting 10-15 years."90 Points - International Wine Cellar"Good deep ruby-red. Aromatic nose combines currant, flowers, menthol, mint and fresh herbs (I might have said garrigue). Then sweet and lush but suave and not at all exaggerated, with very good tannic support to the red fruit and lavender flavors."

    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 wine displays aromas and flavors of creamy pear, green apple, melon and citrus fruit, mingled with notes of subtle toast, butter and yeast from malolactic fermentation and sur lie aging. The vivid fruit characters and hints of zesty, clove-like spice lead to a crisp, refreshing finish. Enjoy this delightful Chardonnay with crab cakes, simply prepared fish and poultry, and a wide variety of cheeses, including Brie and Camembert. 99% Chardonnay, 1% aromatic white varieties.
