Earthy, plum on the nose. Nice finish and firm tannins on the palate. Yummy.

  The Robert Mondavi Winery was founded in 1966 after a family split with the Charles Krug Winery, which had been founded by Robert’s father.  After heading out on his own, Robert settled on land in Napa valley, and in particular the famed To Kalon Vineyard in the Rutherford district. The original plot in To Kalon Vineyard was only 12 acres, but today there are 450 acres under vine. The Robert Mondavi Winery also includes the Wappo Hill Vineyard, which is a 400 acre plot in the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley. Within a year of its inception, the Robert Mondavi Winery proved to be a true pioneer, not only with the establishment of his winery but also by introducing and popularizing the use of French oak barrels for wine, European wine techniques, and the bottling of varietal wines. Robert Mondavi Winery only uses French Oak barrels for storing wine, and his influence and success led to the practice’s prevalence. Among Mondavi’s greatest successes one would have to count the creation of the Fume Blanc moniker for Sauvignon Blanc as well as the introduction of his benchmark Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet. Today Robert Mondavi’s legacy is carried on under the watchful eye of his wife who works with the current winemakers Genevieve Janssens, Gustavo Gonzalez, and Richard Arnold to ensure that today’s Robert Mondavi wines deliver the elegance, appeal, and character that Robert had intended.

For me, this was another Zin that was just too savory, and so strayed outside the bounds of what I'm looking for in a Zinfandel. Very much of a cured meats vibe going on, like bacon and such, as well as some vanilla and a little nuttines. As a Zin, I think it fails. But just as a wine in-general to enjoy it was pretty good. so splitting the middle ground between those two categories, I'll give it a 3 overall.

Scents of cherry, wood, and spice. Flavors start with smoke, berry, and a bit of mocha. Has a dry, powdery finish.

Private Selection Zinfandel 2005 - Robert Mondavi: Private Selection Zinfandel 2005 - Rotwein von Robert MondaviDer Robert Mondavi Private Selection Zinfandel ist ein herrlich typischer Zinfandel mit kräftigen Anklängen an Schwarzkirschen und Pflaumen, zusammen mit pfeffrigen und würzigen Untertönen und ist damit ein Favorit von anspruchsvollen Weinliebhabern in aller Welt. Die Weine aus den speziellen Lagen rund um San Francisco verdeutlichen eindrucksvoll das Potential der Küstenregionen Kaliforniens, da die hier reifenden Trauben Weine von großer Eleganz und Komplexität ergeben. Die warmen und trockenen Tage bedingen reifes und vollaromatisches Rebgut. Die kühlen Nächte hingegen sorgen für eine lange Reifeperiode und somit für Aromenvielfalt und gut ausbalancierte Säure. Sehr zu marinierten Lammkoteletts, gegrillten Steaks oder Nudelgerichten mit Tomatensauce zu empfehlen.Weingut: Robert MondaviLand: USARegion: KalifornienRebsorte: 100% ZinfandelAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol. %Inhalt: 0,75 lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (12 Monate)Lagerfähigkeit: 5 - 7 Jahre ab Jahrgang Rotwein > USA > Kalifornien
