Robert Mondavi Winery Pinot Noir (2014)

New

Fragrantly sweet red cherry and wild berry fruit is layered with a seductive blend of smokiness and spices (cinnamon, clove, vanilla, sage) which flow seamlessly on the round, supple palate. A refreshing lift of acidity balances the richness and the wine finishes with a deliciously long taste of pure, ripe fruit and spice.

    Vineyard Notes
    2014 started with worrisome, drought-like conditions, and many feared a parched, dry spring as in 2013. Refreshingly, spring rains came in February and into March providing water for the soils and filling reservoirs. The wine growing season will most be remembered for the August 24th earthquake that occurred just as harvest was commencing in the Napa Valley. The vines were not affected and harvest finished early, bringing in beautiful, healthy fruit. The selection of grapes for this special Reserve wine were harvested between August 22nd and September 3rd.
    Winemaker Notes
    The clusters were hand-harvested in the cool of the morning to retain fruity, delicate flavors, and then carefully sorted at the winery. A portion of the grapes were destemmed and fermented as whole berries to heighten fruitiness, with a remainder fermented whole cluster (with stems) to add a bit of spice, structure and subtle flesh to the final blend. Fermentation itself took place mainly in small, traditional open-top fermentation tanks, where the cap of skins was punched down gently ensuring a soft, silky mouthfeel. Several days of cold soak prior to fermentation and extended maceration afterwards, added up to a total of 21 days of wine to skin contact to achieve rich, fully developed flavors. The new wine went into 88% new French oak for malolactic fermentation and matured for 9 months.
