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!
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.
