Robert Mondavi Napa Valley Merlot 2012.  


Deep black plum, cassis, violet, fresh dark earth and herb flavors flow seamlessly on a silky palate to a deliciously long, velvety finish. A complex, yet easily approachable wine, we love its combination of concentration, rich texture and drinkability.

CHARACTERISTICS:

Grape Varieties: Blend: 98% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc
Vintage: 2014
VINIFICATION:
Ageing: The final blend was assembled through repeated tasting trials over the 18 months of barrel aging.
Vinification: The grapes were hand harvested in the cool of the morning, then gently de-stemmed and crushed. Nearly one third of the wine was fermented in French-oak tanks in our To Kalon Cellar for soft, supple tannins and textural interest. The balance went into stainless steel tanks for purity of fruit expression. Twenty-two days of maceration maximized color and flavor extraction and polished the tannins for a lush, round mouthfeel. The new wine was transferred to 60-gallon French oak barrels (30% new) for malolactic fermentation and sixteen months aging to develop greater roundness and depth. Smaller amounts of complementary varieties were included in the blend, further enhancing the wine’s structure, balance and complex flavor profile. The wine was bottled in May 2016.
