Robert Mondavi Private Selection Bourbon Barrel-Aged Cabernet Sauvignon 2021
This Cabernet Sauvignon blends the craftsmanship of California winemaking with the Southern tradition of Bourbon Whiskey aging, resulting in an incredibly bold sensory expression. Deep, rich ruby in color, it opens with concentrated aromas of blackberry cobbler, ripe dark berries, graham cracker, brown sugar, vanilla, milk chocolate, and toasty oak with notes of coffee and smoke. Flavors of ripe blackberry cobbler, blueberry pie, praline, sweet vanilla custard, brown sugar, caramel, and mocha, with hints of coffee and smoke. Soft, chewy tannins and toasty oak round the wine out with a long, lush finish. A superb accompaniment to bourbon-glazed grilled ribs, a charcuterie board, hearty pasta dishes, and strong cheeses.
Extremely oak-forward with notes of fresh cedar wood, chocolate, anise, clove and nutmeg leading the way, eventually followed by fresher fruit flavors of red and black plum, blackberry and boysenberry.
