2008 Robert Mondavi Private Selection Zinfandel
83% Zinfandel, 6% Petite Sirah, 4% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 3% Syrah
Our Zinfandel is one of our best—a zesty, fruity red produced from Central Coast grapes. Right off the bat, the wine’s aromas reveal a deep core of rich, lively blackberry, blueberry, and black raspberry fruit with hints of enticing black pepper. In the mouth, the bright fruit flavors take on an expressive spice note that carries over the long, savory finish.
Superbly balanced, with bright acidity and supple tannins, our 2007 Zinfandel will make a fine match for a wide range of hearty dishes, including pepperoni pizza, burgers, barbecued ribs and chicken, grilled spicy sausages, steaks slathered in onions and mushrooms, herb-marinated lamb chops, and zesty red-sauce pastas.

Smell: Fruits and/or red berries
Taste: Hint of red currant. A bit on the sweet side. Fresh tasting wine with little to no bitterness in the aftertaste.
This is a nice wine for the price, around 15 $. If I see it again I will probably buy it. This was a good one. Me and my wife both rate it at 4/5 where 5 is best.
