One look at this Rosé and the color immediately tells you that this is a wine unlike any other. Made from fully mature Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon fruit, the Isabel Mondavi Deep Rosé hails from a complex blend of our prized Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in Atlas Peak, Rutherford, and Howell Mountain.
Our Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards are hand-picked in multiple passes to harvest the fruit in lots based on ripeness and flavor. After careful hand sorting, de-stemming, and gentle crushing, the juice cold soaks on the skins for four to five days where it picks up the deep color and rich flavors that have become the hallmark of our Deep Rosé prior to saigneé and fermentation. The juice is then inoculated with a yeast ideally suited for preserving fruit flavors and maintaining freshness. A very long, cold fermentation (10º-13º C) in stainless steel tanks helps preserve the beautiful fruit aromatics.
Captivating aromas of strawberry, cranberry and red apple fill the glass. Light weight in the mouth with waves of bright red fruit that roll across the palate. Mouth watering acidity dances on the tongue complementing a juicy finish.
This juicy, mouthwatering Deep Rosé pairs well with a wide variety of dishes from spicy Thai cuisine to roasted salmon and Thanksgiving turkey. Enjoy lightly chilled with Valentine's Day chocolates, or be more adventurous and pour it over ice with a spritz of sparkling water and a slice of blood orange to try the "Isabel Rocks" cocktail.
