Winemaker's Notes:

A full-bodied yet supple wine, this Napa Valley Merlot has good structure, with excellent acidity. This wine balances the rich abundance of Merlot's black currant aromas and flavors with the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon and the influences of new French oak. Full-bodied with soft, round tannins and plush mouthfeel, this Merlot shows a mature intensity that extends all the way into a smooth, silken finish.

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.
