Member Review by Kyle Graynor:

Rich, dark berry aroma. A little spicy, and a bit hot. Tannin levels are slightly strong.

  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.

Not a bad PN. It's very complex and earthy, although there's a bit of sourness that hits you as soon as you drink it which I wish were tempered a bit more.

Ok, but I would not buy again. I like Clos Du Bois better.

Kind of blah, bland finish. Wouldn't recommend. Better wines for the price.

Strawberries, cherries, smoke and coffee flavors in this delicately structured, somewhat lean wine. It has good acidity and a pleasant mouthfeel.

Sour cherry and candied raspberry flavors are tasty and refreshing, with a hint of roasted herb and pepper on a light, smooth frame. Drink now through 2009.

Itrsquo;s Pinot-esque in the cherry and raspberry flavors and light, silky tannins, which make for easy drinking. Crisp acidity boosts the flavors and adds zest and life. Certainly a simple wine of little depth, but will suffice for an inexpensive 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. Wellintegrated acids bring a measure of vibrancy to the lush, fleshy texture, and fine-grained tannins lend structure into the smooth, lingering finish.

Abundant layers of cherry, berry, rose and spice. Light nuances of oak and silky tannins add complexity and depth on the palate.

A flavorful wine that captures the vibrancy of Central Coast-grown Pinot Noir grapes with its abundant layers of cherry, violet and spice. Light nuances of oak and silky tannins add complexity and depth on the palate.
