Robert Mondavi Private Selection
Naturally Sweet Pinot Noir
NECTAR WINE STYLE
The Naturally Sweet Pinot Noir is made sweet naturally by pausing fermentation early in the winemaking process, so 100% of the sweetness comes from the grapes’ naturally occurring sugar. This means the wine is made with no added sugar, and it is also lower in alcohol to offer a more thoughtful indulgence.
The wine shows off rich color, fruit-forward aromatics, and exceptionally soft tannins. There are notes of black cherry, plum, and raspberry, followed by notes of vanilla and spice due to the judicious oak aging.
Varietal: Pinot Noir
Analysis: 9% alcohol / volume
Food Pairing: Grilled steak, barbecue brisket sandwiches, or spicy Thai dishes.
WineStyles Wine and Cheese Pairing: Sweet wines from our ‘Nectar’ section pair well with a sharp cheese. Learn more about our wine and cheese pairings here.
