This wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with flavors of red berries accented with cinnamon, vanilla, and clove, according to the company. It can be served at room temperature — or heated on the stove with cinnamon sticks, orange slices and cloves for a mulled wine treat.
Robert Mondavi was a pioneer and innovator in the California wine industry. By using state-of-the-art technology for his winemaking, employing unique growing techniques, and cultivating relationships with the local growers, he was able to help ensure high quality grapes that would produce excellent wines. As an example, Woodbridge Winery was the first major winery to use the "Direct-To-Press" method for making white wine on a large scale. Robert Mondavi's desire to create appealing, drinkable wines is the same vision the Woodbridge winemaking team operates with today. Small winery traditions such as leaving the wines on the lees for greater complexity and aging select lots in French and American oak result in smooth, approachable wines. By tasting all lots separately to determine their specific flavor profiles, the Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi winemaking team ensures that the final blends are fruit-focused and well-balanced.
