  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.

The 2005 Pinot Noir, produced almost entirely from grapes grown along California’s cool Central Coast, reflects the sterling quality of an exceptional vintage. the growing season started early and ended late, allowing grapes to ripen slowly on the vine and achieve concentrated flavors at moderate alcohol levels. The wine reveals its intensity with lovely dark color and fresh aromas and flavors of ripe Bing cherry, black raspberry and cinnamon-like spice. This classic Pinot Noir character is supported by silky tannins, bright, balancing acidity and a remarkably long finish. Enjoy this vibrant, youthful wine with grilled salmon, herb-roasted chicken, country ham, and lamb chops marinated with rosemary and thyme.
