Robert Mondavi Private Selection Bourbon Barrel-Aged Cabernet Sauvignon 2021
The wine is deep, rich ruby in color with a medium body and soft, ripe tannins. It opens with aromas of ripe black cherries, blackberries, and cassis with cigar box, black pepper, vanilla, fragrant toasty oak, and hints of French roast coffee. Flavors of ripe Bing cherries, blackberries, and plum with vanilla, toasty oak, and hints of coffee lead to a long finish. Enjoy with roasted or grilled meat, hearty pasta, 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.
