Robert Mondavi Private Selection Merlot Red Wine has intense, ripe flavors and bright acidity that pairs well with a variety of dishes. Distinctive aromas of ripe red cherry, Asian plum and cranberry, along with hints of black olive, tea leaf, baking spice and sweet oak, make this red merlot a unique dark red wine. Mocha, brown sugar and sweet oak round out the nose, while the palate brims with dark ripe cherry, Marion berry and plum flavors. Oak aging lends sweet toast and brown sugar notes to the lingering finish. This Robert Mondavi red wine is crafted with fruit from California’s Central Coast vineyards, where slow ripening in the cool climate by the Pacific Ocean encourages complexity and depth of flavor. Made with phenomenal grapes, Central Coast wine is of the utmost quality and is offered by Robert Mondavi Private Selection at a more accessible price. Pair this merlot wine with rotisserie chicken, meat ravioli, wild salmon and herbed cheese.
