Robert Mondavi PS Rum Barrels Merlot 2019
Rum Barrel-Aged Merlot blends the traditional craftsmanship of California winemaking with the exotic tradition of dark rum barrel ageing. This results in an incredibly bold and unique sensory expression. Following in the footsteps of our Bourbon Barrel-Aged wines, a portion of this Monterey County Merlot is aged in used Rum barrels. These used barrels impart complex nuances of molasses and toasted coconut.
Ruby red in colour, our Rum Barrel-Aged Merlot fills the glass with rich aromas of molasses, maple, and black plum. Well balanced flavors of jammy plum and blackberries with toasted coconut, baking spices and rich vanilla lead to a long, lush finish.
Alcohol Vol. 14.5%
