Woodbridge Cab California United 2009
The aromas of coffee and toasted oak in our 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon mingle with deep flavors of black cherries and black currants to produce a wonderfully elegant wine. Ripe fruit flavors are structured with firm, seamless tannins and excellent balance. A small amount of Petite Sirah adds a touch of blackberry liqueur, while Merlot and Syrah enhance the wine’s rich mouthfeel and spicy finish. Enjoy this approachable Cabernet Sauvignon with a grilled steak, lamb burgers cooked over the coals and, when cooler weather sets in, hearty soups and stews.
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.
This wine wasnt bad, but it was far from being good. The fruit seemed fake to me, almost like cherry Koolaid, however I found the spice notes it had to be interesting.
Good. Clear flavor. No after taste
This is my new favorite everyday wine. It's not terribly complex, but it's velvety smooth and with a nice finish.
I find this one to be a bit dry for my taste. I would drink it to be polite but would much rather drink something else.
I got a small single serving of this while taking the Amtrak to Chicago. It is exactly what you would expect of a wine that you would buy on an Amtrak. It was good enough, and was pleasant enough to sip on - and, considering my situation - I guess I just didn't feel the right to be snooty about anything. Not a lot of body and the tannins seemed low, but, met expectations well enough.
Nice and smooth. Great value for price.
Dark deep cherry flavors. Lots of character. Good texture and finish. Better than I expected.
External Reviews for Woodbridge Cab California United
Concentrated and nicely textured, with aromas and flavors of brown spice, cocoa and black fruit.
Sattes Granat-Rubin. Kirschenkompott, Dörrzwetschgen und Himbeerlikör in der rotbeerigen Nase, unverkennbare Zinfandel-Intensität. Auch im Gaumen viel Kirschensaft und Himbeersüsse, samtige Textur und verführerische Wärme in der Mitte, verschwenderische Frucht bis ins füllige Finale.
Medium cherry red. Medium-bodied. Moderately extracted. Mildly tannic. Herbs, blackberries. Simple briar fruit flavors on entry. Minerally, mildly herbaceous finish.
Winemaker Notes - Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Merlot has velvety smooth layers of black cherry, blackberry and chocolate character with just a hint of oak.
Rich, velvety layers of ripe black cherry, wild berry and peppery spice.
A wine with a healthy dose of sweet red cherry fruit, this Central Valley Zin is leavened by an herbal tang of tannin on the back, which would serve grilled chicken nicely.
