Mondavi Scarlet Five, California, 2010
Cabernet sauvignon (55%), merlot (28%), petit verdot (13%), cabernet franc (3%), malbec (1%). Our family winery, established in 1943, has been committed to creating fine wines for four generations. Scarlet Five is our winemaker's signature cuvee, an expression of five red varieties, capturing the best of each vintage. It has the backbone of cabernet, the finesse of merlot, the structure of petit verdot, the floral essence of cabernet franc, and the boldness of malbec. This full-bodied wine offers flavors of black cherries and plums and ends in a soft, balanced finish. Alc 13.6% by vol. Vinted & bottled by CK Mondavi Vineyards, St. Helena, CA.
