The Private Selection Zinfandel from Robert Mondavi is a pure grape variety red wine from the sunny, American wine-growing region of California.
In the glass this wine appears in a deep, shining and dark cherry to purple red colour. The fruity bouquet reveals intense aromas of sweet ripe dark berries - especially blackberries and blueberries are very present - accompanied by spicy notes of black pepper. The warm berry fruit of the nose can also be felt on the palate. The lively acidity harmonises wonderfully with the soft tannins and the balanced, seductive body. The long finish is accompanied by a subtle sweetness.
Vinification of the Mondavi Zinfandel Private Selection
In the appellations Paso Robles, Santa Barbara, Monterey County and Valley South the grapes for this American red wine grow. The berries are harvested at optimal ripeness and immediately taken to Robert Mondavi's wine cellar. There the grapes are selected, completely destemmed and ground. The mash is then fermented in stainless steel tanks. Once the alcoholic fermentation is complete, this wine matures for 11 months in small French and American oak barrels.
