This was a delicious wine.  It’s a lovely ruby color with great viscosity.  The aroma and flavors are the classic merlot: black stone fruit and berries, a chewy leather, tobacco vibe.  Try pairing this with Donna Hay’s Spiced Lamb Chops.  If you don’t know Donna Hay, she’s Australia’s cool version of Martha Stewart.

The specifics on Robert Mondavi Winery Napa Merlot 2006:  15.0% alcohol.  Cork closure.  The merlot grapes were sourced from the southern half of Napa Valley.  The suggested retail price is $23 USD.  This was a wine sample kindly provided by Folsom & Associates.

The music match is from one of Wine Harlots favorite bands.  “Sing” by Travis from the album Invisible Band.  Crank up the Travis, open a bottle of Mondavi and watch the stars.bottleshot of Robert Mondavi Winery Napa Merlot 2006
