    Winemaker 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.

    Born to a French family in Morocco and raised in France, Genevieve’s formal wine education began under the tutelage of the legendary “three fathers” of modern enology—Jean Ribereau-Gayon; his son, Pascal Ribereau-Gayon; and Emile Peynaud—with whom she studied at the University of Bordeaux, France. After receiving her National Diploma of Enology 1974, she returned to her family’s vineyards in Corsica and France, which she managed from 1974 to 1977. Concurrently, she also owned and operated her own enology laboratory in Provence and served as consulting enologist to many French chateaux in the mid-seventies. Drawn to Robert Mondavi Winery’s philosophy in winemaking and winegrowing, Genevieve moved to the Napa Valley in 1978. She recognized in Robert Mondavi her father’s holistic approach to quality. “It starts with the earth, the legacy of what she had received from her ancestors and what she was going to leave for the future generation,” she says. “We must work to maintain the land, to grow so that we all live in symbiosis: the earth, the vines, the people—care creates quality.” From 1978–1979, she fully absorbed this philosophy, working at Robert Mondavi Winery as a lab enologist and an assistant enologist. Deeply interested in the winemaking revolution taking hold in the state, Genevieve continued exploring California for the next decade, holding several consulting positions. Genevieve’s connection to Robert Mondavi returned in 1989, when she became Director of Production at Opus One Winery. Then, in 1997, she came full circle as the Director of Winemaking at Robert Mondavi Winery.
