Robert Mondavi Pinot Noir Reserve 2012

Carneros, Napa Valley, California, United StatesBig black cherry, tobacco, celery salt, rooty, licorice, black pepper, vanilla, light smoky oak and vanilla aromas. Dry, tart, tight palate with some gritty tannins. Smoky oak, stemmy, rooty, bramble, black cherry, tobacco, vanilla, gamey, light barnyard flavours. Rich, ripe California style pinot. The reserve is now mostly two select Carneros AVA blocks: Rancho Carneros head-trained, dry-farmed vines over forty years old and the clonally diverse Hyde Vineyard planted in 1979. This will need time to develop.Tasted: 18 May 2015Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: QC 60.50 SAQ Producer: Robert Mondavi WineryDistributors: Arterra Wines Canada
