Robert Mondavi Ps Syrah NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2006 Syrah was produced exclusively from grapes grown in Californias Central Coast American Viticultural Area a region renowned for its coolclimate renditions of this classic Northern Rhne Valley variety. In 2006 an especially cool drawn-out growing season enabled us to harvest our Central Coast Syrah grapes with an ideal balance of grape sugars and acids resulting in a fresh aromatic richly flavored Syrah. The wines complex nose reveals ripe blackberry dark plum and black raspberry aromas with distinctive varietal scents of violets white pepper licorice mint and roasted earth. On the silky supple palate sappy black fruit and spice flavors are enriched by a savory toasty oak tone while the wines fresh bright fruit persists through a long well-balanced finish.

  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.
