Monterey County is the kind of place Merlot grapes love to grow. Not too warm, not too cold, a little bit of rainfall. Makes our coastal Merlot just right.

BRANDRobert Mondavi Winery
The Robert Mondavi Private Selection Merlot is made with grapes predominantly from California's Monterey County appellation. There, the vineyards enjoy a nightly blanket of cool Pacific Ocean fog, excellent soils and a long growing season. This ideal combination brings vibrant flavors and silky tannins to our Merlot including luscious layers of berry, plum and spice with light oak nuances from barrel-aging.
