Robert Mondavi Winery Private Selection Bourbon Barrel-Aged Cabernet Sauvignon
Robert Mondavi Winery Private Selection Bourbon Barrel-Aged Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep cherry red from its rich black cherries and blueberries with vanilla and brown sugar aroma that is sure to please. Robert Mondavi Winery Private Selection Bourbon Barrel-Aged Cabernet Sauvignon is best with some bourbon glazed ribs to match.
We craft this richly textured Cabernet Sauvignon with Monterey County fruit, picked at the peak of ripeness in our coastal vineyards. In a truly original alternative to traditional aging, we set aside a portion of the blend to age in a mix of new and used bourbon barrels. The new barrels give the wine its deep undertones of toasted oak. The used barrels—selected from a renowned Kentucky distillery—exude notes of vanilla and dried herbs, hinting at the fine bourbon that once graced these casks. The result is a bold, flavorful wine, unlike any other Cabernet.
Layered and complex, our Bourbon Barrel-aged Cabernet Sauvignon leaps from the glass with aromas of blackberry cobbler, graham cracker, brown sugar, milk chocolate, coffee and smoke. A palate of blueberry pie, praline, sweet vanilla custard, caramel and mocha is framed by soft, chewy tannins and a hint of toasted oak on the lingering finish.
