Description

Robert Mondavi Private Selection Bourbon Barrel-Aged Cabernet Sauvignon 2019


This richly textured Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted with California grapes picked at the peak of ripeness in the coastal vineyards. Adding a twist to traditional barrel-aging, select lots of the blend are aged in a mix of new and used bourbon barrels, The new barrels give the wine its deep undertones of toasted oaks while the used barrels exude notes of vanilla and dried herbs. The result is a bold, flavourful wine, unlike any other Cabernet.
It is layered and complex, this bottle of red gives out aromas of blackberry cobbler, graham cracker, brown sugar, milk chocolate, coffee and smoke. A palate of blueberry pie, praline, sweet vanilla custard, caramel and mocha is framed by soft, chewy tannins and a hint of toasted oak on the lingering finish.



In order for a wine to qualify as a varietal in the United States, it must be produced from 75% of that varietal. When crafting Cabernet Sauvignon, vintners often blend in other grape varieties (Melrot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Petite Syrah, and Shiraz) to achieve their desired style. At Robert Mondavi, their 100%s are exceptions. The 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is made only with Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, picked at the peak of ripeness from California vineyards for a pure and full expression of the classical varietals.
