Robert Mondavi's Private Selection Zinfandel is a red wine from the sunny, American wine region of California.
In the glass, this wine appears in a deep, glossy and dark cherry to magenta color. The fruity bouquet reveals intense aromas of sweetly ripened dark berries - blackberries and blueberries are particularly 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 harmonizes wonderfully with the gentle tannins and the balanced, seductive body. The long reverberation is accompanied by a subtle sweetness.
Vinification of Mondavi Zinfandel Private Selection
The grapes for this American red wine grow in the appellations Paso Robles, Santa Barbara, Monterey County and Valley South. The berries are harvested at optimum ripeness and immediately brought to Robert Mondavi's wine cellar. There, the readings are selected, completely destemmed and ground. The mash is then fermented in stainless steel tanks. Once alcoholic fermentation is complete, this wine matures for 11 months in small French and American oak barrels.
