Wine Maker Notes
We harvested the grapes when they reached their optimum flavor maturityand sugar-to-acid balance, then rushed them to our nearby winery for gentlecrushing. We fermented the must (juice and skins) with a selected yeaststrain in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks to retain fruitiness, andthen oak aged the wine for complexity. We "married” the Cabernet-Merlotfor several more months, with judicious amounts of oak, to achieve just theright balance of fruit and toasted oak spices.
Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon boasts rich dark fruit, cocoa and spice character, with a hint of oak for complexity.
