Central Coast, California- Bright aromas and flavors of smooth cherry, plum and strawberry with hints of cedar, black olive and spice—supported by a supple texture with fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. These qualities come from choice Central Coast Merlot grapes.
In Robert Mondavi's vineyards in the Central Coast, it’s foggy, windy, cool, and damp, with a break of afternoon sunlight, pretty much every day. It's beautiful in a rough ‘n’ tumble kind of way. But for grapes, it's paradise.
In this environment, grapes grow slowly, with plenty of time to build deep, pure flavors, bright acid, and elegant wine textures. From Chardonnay to Cabernet, the delicious benefits of those just-right conditions come shining through in glass after glass of Robert Mondavi's wines.
