Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 76% Pinot Noir, 16% Syrah, 4% Mourvedre, 2% Petite Sirah, 2% Merlot

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.

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.
