Robert Mondavi Barrel-Aged: When Wine and Spirits Meet

Robert Mondavi had the vision to create fine Napa Valley wines. Establishing the Robert Mondavi Winery in 1966 in Kalon Vineyard, the heart of Napa Valley, he began his portfolio of fine wines. After the success of his initial winery, Robert Mondavi established Woodbridge Winery in Lodi, California in 1979. Having grown up in the area, he was confident in the region's ability to make fruit-forward wines that are suited to everyday drinking. This became the first major winery to use the Direct-to-Press method for making white wine on a large scale. 

He helped build the Napa Valley wine scene through collaborations with other winemaking icons such as Baron Philippe de Rothschild to create brands like Opus One. Mondavi was the first winemaker to be Napa Green Certified and the first to receive an Innovator Award from California’s Environmental Protection Agency. Each vineyard is located in a coastal area and revels in unique geography combined with a cool climate, producing grapes with distinctive character and classic expressions.

Mondavi wanted to create quality wines at affordable prices, wines that would enrich everyday experiences. This then led to the creation of Robert Mondavi Private Selection. Taking in 26 years of winemaking expertise and a trailblazing legacy in California wines, the Robert Mondavi Private Selection offers something more substantive. They are created for those who don’t just drink wine but savor every sip. 

Robert Mondavi: Private Selection Barrel-Aged Wines

The Private Selection range is designed to build on Robert Mondavi traditions, enhancing wine varietals with new layers of flavor. The idea is not just what wine is expected to taste like, but what it can taste like, so you can have the most flavorful experience every time you sip. This is taken a step further with the Barrel-Aged collection: combining winemaking with the tradition of aging fine spirits in oak casks, the resulting wines have unique character and complexity of flavor to the well-loved Mondavi style.

Robert Mondavi Private Selection Bourbon Barrel-Aged Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is well-loved not only across the world, but in the Philippines as well, and the Bourbon Barrel-Aged Cab Sauv brings with it a unique complexity. Combining experienced craftsmanship with the Southern tradition of bourbon whiskey barrel aging, Robert Mondavi brings bold and decadent flavors to a timeless classic. 

Robert Mondavi Private Selection Rum Barrel-Aged Merlot

For something softer but still bold in its own right, the Rum Barrel-Aged Merlot blends the familiar with the exotic. Jammy flavors of plum and blueberry are enhanced by nuances of toasted coconut, molasses, and rich vanilla bean to deliver a beautiful wine experience. 

Robert Mondavi Private Selection Rye Barrel-Aged Red Blend

If you like spicy notes in your wine (think spices not spicy) the Rye Barrel-Aged Red Blend is a must-try. The expertly crafted red blend brings flavors of plum, black cherry, and blackberry thanks to the cool climate of coastal vineyards. Select lots of the red blend are then aged in Rye Whiskey barrels which imparts notes of gingerbread spice and toasted oak. 

Robert Mondavi Private Selection Bourbon Barrel-Aged Chardonnay

If you’re after a beautifully layered white wine then give this Chardonnay a try. Enjoy rich and creamy notes of ripe pineapple and juicy peach with a twist of caramel, vanilla, and subtle oak thanks to careful aging in Bourbon barrels.
