Description

Robert Mondavi Private Selection Rum Barrel-Aged Merlot 2019


The Robert Mondavi Rum Barrel-Aged Merlot blends the traditional craftsmanship of California winemaking with the exotic tradition of dark rum barrel aging for an incredibly bold and unique sensory expression.  The cool climate of the coastal vineyards imparts the wine with rich aromas of molasses, maple, and black plum, and jammy, and well-balanced flavors of plum and blueberry. Select lots are then aged in Rum barrels, delivering complex nuances of toasted coconut, molasses, and rich vanilla when added to the blend.
This is a richly flavoured, full bodied Merlot that really gets the blood pumping. Ready for immediate enjoyment or will cellar well for many years to come.









The latest addition to the portfolio - Rum Barrel-aged Merlot blend is the traditional craftsmanship of California winemaking with the exotic tradition of dark rum barrel aging, following in the footstep of the Bourbon Barrel-aged wines. This results in an incredibly bold and unique sensory expression. A portion of this Monterey county Merlot is aged in used rum barrels, which impart complex nuances of molasses and toasted coconuts.
