Robert Mondavi Pinot Noir 2013
Editorial Reviews for Robert Mondavi Pinot Noir
This is fairly oaky on the nose and obviously so, with nice cherry fruit under the oak along with a hint of river stone and some vanilla bean. Smooth and understated, though with a certain richness in the mouth. This builds quickly, showing off dark cherry fruit backed up with noticeable tannins and creamy, toasty oak. The fruit takes on flashes of raspberry on the mid-palate and the spice integrates well then returns along with a wash of wood tannin on the moderately long, slightly sticky and hot finish. This will prove to be very popular but it's a touch clumsy with the oak for me. 88pts
Very dark and cola-scented with noticeable alcohol, gentle herb notes, some distinct nutmeg tones and baked black cherry fruit. On entry this is rich and voluptuous with tons of sweet black cherry fruit and a touch of baking spices. The acids are well integrated and the tannins give a very lightly dusty feel to the mid-palate. The wine has some attractive herbal nuances on the mid-palate, with a hint of citrus peel popping out toward the backend. The finish is a bit short but this is holding its alcohol very well. A rich, dense style of Pinot that many will enjoy but it lacks the elegance of Pinot Noir. 88pts
Write your review here, and rate the wine from 1 to 5 glasses above.This really offers up some nice, complex aromatics that start off rather pine foresty with really sweet wood tones that recall coffee cream, and marshmallows but gains some depth with a meaty note and accents of sweet pipe tobacco and some dried tomato. On entry this is sweet but quickly turns hard and angular with tough little tannins fighting the small red fruits for your attention. The tannins win on the moderately short finish, which is also a tad hot.This just may need time but is a little disappointing. 86pts
My first impression of this wine was that the grape flavor overpowered all the other ones on the first taste. The wine became more balanced and smooth after a while.
Nothing exciting. Perhaps it's just too young and needs more development in the bottle. Sweet fruity notes, but no complexity. A bit unbalanced. Not what I expect from Carneros pinot noir. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 1/16/10
Pleasantly surprised by this Pinot.
Not too bad
Luscious and balanced, cherry nose with hints of truffles. Round in the mouth with long finish. A great expression of Carneros Pinot Noir.

External Reviews for Robert Mondavi Pinot Noir
Robed in deep color, this Pinot Noir opens with the intense aromas of dark fruits - black cherries and plums - that echo on the palate. Well integrated acids bring a measure of vibrancy to the lush, fleshy texture, and fine-grained tannins lend structure into the smooth, lingering finish.
When Robert Mondavi founded the iconic Robert Mondavi Winery in 1966, his vision was to create fine Napa Valley wines that would stand in the company of the of the world s finest.
Medium cherry red. Medium-bodied. Moderately extracted. Moderately oaked. Moderately tannic. Rich cherry aromas with vanilla accents lead a rounded palate with some depth of fruit flavors and a hint of astringent tannins giving some authority to the finish.
Unfolds with complex layers of black cherries, ripe berries, sweet spices, roses and woodsy nuances. Rich, highly extracted fruit flavors linger in a finish laced with vanilla and toasty oak.
Winemaker's notes:Plum red in color the 2007 vintage is vibrant with considerable substance and structure. Aromas and flavors of dark fruits, black plum and jammy black cherry, merge with notes of spice, herbs and subtle oak. Fine-grained tannins lead to a long, smooth finish. A richly satisfying wine.
Light, fresh and fruity, with lively cherry and strawberry flavors accented by sweet oak notes. Bracing acidity keeps the fruit bright. An elegant wine for drinking now through 1994.
Attractive for its range of wild berry, black cherry, sage, tea and spice, itrsquo;s moderately rich and concentrated, but turns simpler and loses its focus on the aftertaste.
