95pt Robert Mondavi Maestro - Winery: $50.00 - Redneck: $29.97!
We just popped a bottle of the Mondavi Maestro to confirm the 95pt review and the Redneck crew all agreed that especially for $29.97, it's a great drink and well deserves reviews. The wine is drinking great right now. Maestro is inspired by Bordeaux blends, but it has a free-spirited California flair all its own. Each vintage, we take our cues from the vineyards, sourcing from all over Napa Valley (and in this case, a final touch from the historic Bedrock Vineyard in Sonoma) to put together the best red blend ref lective of the vintage. The wine always includes fruit from our singular To Kalon Vineyard in Oakville, located on the well-drained alluvial bench surrounding the winery. This year, we also sourced from the Oak Knoll District, known for producing fresh, full reds, and from our hillside site in Napa Carneros, which produces beautifully ripe Cabernet Sauvignon with lovely acidity. Stay safe, stay healthy and drink well. Tim Alberdi Redneck Wine Crew
