Robert Mondavi Winery Zinfandel Napa Valley Old Vines 2009

External Review by Flaschenpost Weinservice GmbH:

Helles, brillantes Rosa. Herrliches Bouquet nach roten Beeren und zarten Grenadinearomen duftend. Saftiger, enorm süffiger Gaumen, angenehm trocken und doch leicht süsslich. Im Finale Himbeernoten und rote Kirschen.

  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.

Starts soft, with raspberry and dried berry flavors that wrap together in the ripe tannins of the finish. Drink now through 2005.

Good everyday Zin, a little green, but rich enough in raspberry and cherry flavors with a hit of spice. The dryness and moderate alcohol win extra points.

This spicy, medium-bodied and full-fruit style has become something of a signature for Mondavi, which has a long history of producing fine Zinfandel in this price range.

Aromas hint of spices, especially cloves and black pepper, with underlying fruit of black cherries and berries. The tannins are velvety and the finish is delightfully long.
