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.

    This Cabernet Sauvignon has deep, expressive aromas and flavors of berry and black currant with nuances of mocha, violets and spice. The fruit envelops an elegant structure with firm, velvety tannins and excellent length. The wine's personality comes from the soils and climates of vineyards located in the geographic center of Napa Valley. Fermentation with both native and cultured yeast strains gives layers of nuance to the wine, and extended skin contact intensifies varietal complexity and softens tannins. The wine was aged in French oak chateau barrels and bottled it without filtration to capture the full flavor profile and lush texture.

    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.

    The Private Selection Cabernet Sauvignon comes from cool-climate Central Coast grapes and has been blended with Syrah and small amounts of Merlot, Malbec and Petite Sirah. The wine has the sweet black

    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

    Lively and Chablis-like, with fresh green apple, green pear and citrus notes. Clean and easy-drinking. Drink now through 2015.
