Robert Mondavi Winery Zinfandel Napa Valley Old Vines 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

The Robert Mondavi Private Selection range wines embrace the best characteristics of their distinctive vineyards on California's Central Coast, where cool fog and ocean breezes create a long growing season that results in grapes of intense flavour concentration. The unique geography and fascinating history of California's Central Coast give the region a character as distinctive as its wines. This medium-bodied rendition of California’s trademark red wine is produced from North and Central Coast fruit. It offers the bright blueberry, zesty raspberry, and peppery spice notes that make Zinfandel such a popular and versatile food wine. With bright acidity and supple tannins, this is a fine match for a wide range of red meat dishes.

  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.
