Woodbridge By Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Red Dirt Ridge 2001
Appearance: Deep, dense, dark, blue-tinged color Tasting Notes: Deep and dense with perfumed aromas and delicious flavors of blackberry, cassis, black olive and dark chocolate. Smooth and supple, with fine-grained tannins, good acid and a lengthy finish. Winemaker Notes: • Hand-harvested in cool morning hours • Fermented in a combination of stainless steel and oak tanks • 29 days of maceration (skin contact) to soften tannins • Barrel-to-barrel racking to develop flavors • 14 months of aging in French oak château barrels (20% new oak)

External Reviews for Woodbridge By Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Red Dirt Ridge
Bright and lively with nice balance and acidity. Hints of oak mixed with herb, cedar and red fruits.
A little thin in flavor, but honest and robust, with thick tannins framing blackberries, cherries, currants and herbs. A very good price for a Cab this easy to drink.
