Description

A new addition to the Mondavi portfolio where winemaking and spirits combine, that of ageing Californian Merlot in dark rum barrels. Perhaps this new trend of ageing wine in bourbon or rum casks is catching on, Australians are doing it too. This is not about subtlety, in fact the complete opposite, big, bold and in your face. Uber ripe fruit provides the basis for this bold style, sweet fruit is supported by the rum flavoured oak. Some will love it.

Smells

its intriguing where super ripe plums from the Merlot meet chocolate, vanilla and coconut rum aromas from the barrels.

Tastes

It really is where wine and spirits come together, the rum flavours are strong, complimenting the dark plum fruit with chocolate and coffee bean flavours. A velvety smooth texture and soft acid make for a juicy style, perfect in front of the fire with a hearty stew.
