Vine2Try – Coastal Crush Red by Robert Mondavi

Robert Mondavi Private Selection 2011 Coastal Crush Red is a wine for any occasion, but especially for the holiday.

This blend of 67% Syrah, 24% Merlot and 9% Malbec is blended for a smooth introduction to your palate.

Thanks to a live twitter tasting, I was able to try this wine out and its a winner. Its color is a red with a hint of purple.  The first sip is smooth and easy on the palate and it finishes with a hit of spice and of course the FRUIT, but not fruity.

Pairing Suggestions: Cheese:Gouda or Brie, Pizza, meat sauces and of course Turkey!

Price: 11.00

Recommendation: This a good wine for those wishing to stretch their palate to reds, the red wine lover and perfect for any holiday meal or hostess gift.

Tip: Try serving chilled.

Where to buy: You can find anywhere Mondavi wines are sold. I would check with the local Ralph’s first. I have not purchased it yet, as the tasting bottle was provided complimentary. I will update this post with more locations as I find them.
