Robert Mondavi 2006 Private Selection Pinot Noir was produced primarily from grapes grown along California's marine-influenced Central Coast. Reflecting the character
of the cool, elongated 2006 vintage, which fostered the development of classic varietal aromas and flavors in Mondavi's Pinot Noir grapes,
this vivacious red wine's hallmark is fresh, vibrant fruit.
In the nose, lovely raspberry and dried cherry aromas mingle with complementary scents
of white and black pepper, mint and chicory. On the medium-bodied palate, the wine's supple, silky, berry and cherry jam flavors display
a zesty black pepper spiciness in the bright, crisp finish.
Enjoy this pert, pretty Pinot Noir with grilled salmon, herb-roasted chicken,
baked ham, and lighter pork and duck dishes.
