Winemaker's Notes:

Pure, focused fruit expression of black cherry and black raspberry intermingle with hints of sweet spices, vanilla, sun warmed roses and toasted oak. Intriguing nuances of complexity from wild yeast and natural, in-barrel fermentations weave through the rich, opulent fruit flavors. Our executive chef, Annie Roberts, suggests pairing the elegant flavors of our Napa Valley Pinot Noir with roasted salmon filet with a shiitake mushroom sauce. Roast free-range chicken, mustard-glazed pork loin or wild mushroom ravioli are also perfect marriages with this wine.

About Robert Mondavi Winery:

For more than 40 years, Robert Mondavi Winery has been the symbol of Napa Valley. Founded in 1966, it was the first major winery built in Napa Valley in the three decades following the repeal of Prohibition (1933), and went on to establish the foundation for modern California winemaking. Robert Mondavi Winery's mission-styled architecture, with the expansive archway and bell tower designed by Cliff May, has become an enduring landmark that honors California's history. With the philosophy that great wines reflect their origins, Robert Mondavi Winery pursues the fullest expression of the terroir of its Napa Valley vineyards: the historic To Kalon Vineyard in the Oakville American Viticultural Area (AVA), and the Wappo Hill Vineyard in the Stags Leap Vineyard AVA.
