Robert Mondavi Napa Valley Merlot 2014
The Tasting PanelItalian herbs and soy sauce may sound like the beginning of a favorite recipe, but Winemaker Joe Harden ensured this velvet-lined red was made to pair with a variety of foods. Thanks to its lean acid structure, rich texture, and ripe fruit, this wine scored high with us. While the majority of the fruit hails from the Stags Leap District (42%), a small amount also comes from selected Napa Valley AVAs like Oak Knoll, Yountville, and Rutherford. The palate offers chocolate plum and is dense with spice and gritty new cedar tannins. Blackberry-coffee notes even out the finish.
Wine EnthusiastThis wine offers a wealth of big flavor and plush structure within a context of savory oak and firm tannin. Black olive and licorice highlight a nicely composed framework of plum and dark cherry, dotted with fresh tobacco.
