October Wines

Robert Mondavi Wines

Riesling
The 2016 growing season created Riesling with aromas of candied orange peel, citrus blossom, honey, and apricots and rain slicked half dome. Flavors of peach, honey, key lime, and baklava follow. Crisp, refreshing acidity and minerality balanced with sweetness combine to create a lingering and ripe, citrus finish.

Pinot Grigio
Our 2016 Pinot Grigio is medium bodied with a flinty minerality and crisp acidity. It opens with honeydew, ripe melon, mineral, and citrus flavors. The body shows crisp acidity and ripe fruit flavors, a medium bodied wine with an easy entry and subtle, clean, lingering finish.
Paired with Shrimp Cocktail

Chardonnay
Our 2016 Chardonnay is rich and creamy with a balanced acidity and finish. The wine offers flavors of baked apples, poached pears, pineapple, lime with baking spices, and toasty oak.
Paired with Bacon Wrapped Scallops

Chardonnay
Our Chardonnay vintage comes from Monterey County, California, where the cool climate and long growing season makes for the perfect Chardonnay, with bright acidity and hints of white peach, citrus fruit, fresh hazelnuts and subtle aromas of toasted oak.
Paired with Ham & Manchego Sliders

Pinot Noir
Our 2015 Pinot Noir is medium ruby in color with a medium body and soft tannins. The wine offers aromas of ripe, red cherries and violets with hints of Asian spice, sweet tobacco, and Madagascar vanilla bean followed by flavors of sweet cherries and strawberries.
Paired with Smoked Salmon Spread

Merlot
Our 2015 Merlot has a deep ruby color. It opens with aromas of ripe cherry, Asian plum, and cranberry with hints of black olive, tea leaf, backing spice, mocha, brown sugar, and sweet oak. Flavors of dark, ripe cherry, marionberry, and plum follow with sweet brown sugar, English toffee, and mocha. The finish is soft and lingering.
Paired with New York Strip with Garlic Butter

Meritage
Inspired by the European travels of Robert Mondavi, this Meritage blend is rich, elegant, and complex. It includes all five classic red Bordeaux varieties: Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. Our 2014 Meritage is deep garnet in color. Ripe blackberry, mulberry, blueberry, and violet aromas open with hints of mulling spice, and dark chocolate are followed by flavors of mixed berry cobbler, cinnamon, and Tahitian vanilla. The tannins are rich and chewy. The finish lingers with brown sugar, caramel, and spicy oak.
Paired with Rib Eye on 3 cheese focaccia

Cabernet Sauvignon
Our 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon has been blended from Cabernet Sauvignon and small amounts of Petite Sirah and Syrah sourced from cool-climate growing regions of California. The wine is deep ruby in color with a medium body and soft, ripe tannins. It opens with aromas of black cherries, blackberries, and cassis with hints of cigar box, black pepper, vanilla, toasty oak, and French roast coffee. Flavors of Bing cherries, plum, vanilla, coffee, and toasty oak, lead to a long finish.
Paired with Tenderloin Steak with blue cheese
