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)
Thirty years ago, Robert Mondavi set out to establish a wine culture in America by putting great California wine on every table. Invigorated by the success of Robert Mondavi Winery in the Napa Valley, in 1979 he established the Woodbridge Winery near his childhood home of Lodi, California.
External Reviews for Woodbridge By Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Red Dirt Ridge
Starts off with a pronounced licorice quality, framed in smoky oak. The wine shows moderate body, with currant and spice fanning out on an herbal finish. Best from 2000 through 2006.
Bright and lively with nice balance and acidity. Hints of oak mixed with herb, cedar and red fruits.
