Robert Mondavi Winery
Robert Mondavi Private Selection Rye Barrel Aged Red Blend, Monterey County
Robert Mondavi's Rye Barrel-Aged Red Blend brings together the craftsmanship of California winemaking with the time-honored tradition of aging fine rye whiskey in oak barrels. This results in an incredibly bold and unique sensory expression. Dark ruby in color, this wine opens with aromas of boysenberry, black cherry, nutmeg, cinnamon, and gingerbread spice, with hints of sweet mesquite smoke, tobacco, and barley malt. Deep, rich flavors of jammy boysenberry, gingerbread, cinnamon, and nutmeg, with ripe, chocolatey tannins and a smooth, subtle smoke on the finish. A superb accompaniment to grilled skirt steak, charcuterie board, aged cheeses, Kobe beef sliders, and great friends with outrageous stories.
