Winemaker Notes: “Our Royal St. Robert Cuvée is named in honor of our grandfather Robert who taught us to be committed to excellence. This bottling is a selection of our finest barrels giving a window into the cool, rugged westerly hills of the true Sonoma Coast. Aromas of wild strawberries, crushed dark red cherries, and rose petals fill the bowl. Black tea, wet crushed rock, and notes of "where the forest meets the meadow" yield to thyme and more delicate floral notes with finely-grained tannins leading to a long sumptuous finish.” - Winemaker Carlo Mondavi

BACKGROUND
Brothers Carlo and Dante Mondavi honed their substantial Pinot Noir making talents during a stage in France, interning for Burgundy legends Domaine Dujac and none other than Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC)*, the 'KING of Burgundy’ and the source of the most sought after (and expensive) wine in the world! Another unique insider fact is that the Mondavi's leveraged their connections to secure ultra-exclusive French oak barrels normally only available to Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC)!
