New from the Michael Mondavi Family:  Crimson Ranch

The Mondavi name is synonymous with pioneering California winemaking. With his new Crimson Ranch wines, third-generation Napa Valley winemaker Michael Mondavi has created a trio of wines that are quintessentially Californian.

Crimson Ranch “Each has elements of winemaking style that has made California famous,” says Taylor Barneby of Total Wine & More’s wine-buying team.

“The Chardonnay is creamy and buttery, with bright tropical fruit flavors. The Cabernet is full-bodied and dense, with rich vanilla and red fruit flavors. And the Red Blend is a fruit basket of flavors, with the smooth and succulent finish California blends have become known for.”

At the Michael Mondavi Family Estate in the Napa Valley, Mondavi produces several notable wines including his flagship Cabernet, M by Michael Mondavi, and the flavorful and elegant Isabel Mondavi wines.

For the Crimson Ranch wines, Mondavi drew on the family’s longstanding relationships around California to source fruit from the state’s best winegrowers.   The result is a collection of rich and fruit-forward wines that offer an excellent – and affordable – introduction to Michael Mondavi Family wines.
