Robert Mondavi BDX Red Blend Oakville 2012.
Classic Bordeaux varieties are ripened in Robert Mondavi's sunblessed and ideally located To Kalon vineyard to provide a wine both firm in structure and rich in texture—a different expression of Oakville. Not produced every vintage, this special wine has deep, blackberry fruit with savory and white sage flavors balanced by sweet oak spices.

|Ageing:||The final blend was assembled through repeated tasting trials over the 28 months of barrel aging. The wine was bottled in March, 2015.|
|Grape Harvest:||Each grape variety was hand-harvested into small bins and carefully sorted in our gravity-flow cellar.|
|Vinification:||The clusters were gently destemmed directly into traditional French oak tanks for cold soak, fermentation and extended maceration – a total of 34 days of wine to skin contact – maximizing the extraction of varietal character and complexity while keeping the tannins fleshy and supple. The new wines were drained and gently pressed into 55% new French-oak barrels for malolactic fermentation, assuring seamless integration of fruit and oak.|
