Wine Maker Notes
Robert Mondavi was one of the most important pioneers of Californian wine, if not the most important. He is know for his tremendous contributions to technological advancements and marketing of California wine. And it’s a shame that this the first time we’ve reviewed a wine bearing his name, although we have reviewed other wines from the Mondavi family.
Although started as a family company, the winery was acquired by Constellation Brands in 2004, where it resides today. There are a few different brands that bear the Robert Mondavi name and the Robert Mondavi Private Selection brand is a mid-level brand — despite the fact that “private selection” might imply that it’s the best stuff, selected for a private few, lucky consumers. That’s good marketing! While it’s not the cheapest wine you can find with the Robert Mondavi name on it, it’s far from the most expensive.
