Robert Mondavi Winery – PNX 2012 Pinot Noir – Carneros – Napa Valley

(91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot) The nose is elegant, fine, charming, quite powerful and a nice velvety sensation. It reveals notes of flowers (violet, a slight note of iris) and slight notes of blackberry associated with a few slight notes of pepper, blackberry liqueur, blueberry and a touch of vanilla. The palate is fruity, balanced, complex, suave, elegant and offers some minerality, juicy fruits and a beautiful silky matter. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of blackberry, plum and violet associated with a few mineral notes, slight notes of sweet spices as well as touches of strawberry (on the finish), oak and hazelnut. Tannins are fine and integrated. Good length. A charming wine!
