Winemaker's Notes:

Our 1999 Pinot Noir Reserve unfolds with richly textured layers of ripe dark fruit, reminiscent of plums, sweet cherries and black raspberries. Nuances of truffles, rose petals and a hint of smokiness weave through the opulent fruit flavors; notes of vanilla linger on the finish. We selected the most outstanding grapes of the vintage for our Reserve wine and gently hand crafted these vineyard lots with the finest techniques. Native yeasts, small oak fermenting tanks and new Burgundian barrels contributed to our Reserves rich, complex character and long aging potential.

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.
