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.

    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.

    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%

    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.
