“Nothing Between my Red and Green”
It’s the Holiday Season and those two magical colors take over our life in the month of December….Red and Green. One of my favorite ways to celebrate holiday spirit is a Green bottle with a beautiful, Red wine hidden inside! This can affordably be accomplished with Robert Mondavi PS Coastal Crush Red 2011.
The Robert Mondavi PS Coastal Crush Red blend is probably my favorite Private Selection wine they make, to date. It’s so drinkable and pairable right out of the bottle that when you give it a little air (breath time) it’s that much better! Robert Mondavi has been moving forward with their Private Selection line rather well and the Central Coast Wines are simply some of their best.
The Coastal Crush Red 2011 is Central Coast juice. Most of the fruit is from Monterey and San Benito counties. A red blend of (67%) Syrah; (24%) Merlot and (9%) Malbec. The wine has the beautiful, distinct inky purple that you’ve come to know from Syrah and Malbec but also glimmering with cherry red highlights from the Merlot. Very showy wine in the glass. The nose gives up raspberry and blackberry with a hint of cocoa, spice and all that’s nice! On the taste buds you immediately sense dark berry fruits, but nothing jammy…theres a bit of acidity to balance it out. The Coastal Crush Red has a sexy, soft, supple texture with good structure; especially for a wine in this price category. The wine ends with a long, smooth finish.
I would definitely recommend this wine for the Holidays. At $11.00 a bottle and a FOUR BOTTLE Rating, you can buy yourself a case, share with friends and family and have that extra bottle when you need a private moment to relax. It’s a sure crowd pleaser and is one of those reds that will match nicely with many different foods. I paired mine with Spaghetti & Red Meat Sauce….it was terrific!
So get your Red and Green on this Holiday Season and invite Robert Mondavi Private Selection Coastal Crush Red 2011 to the party ~ You’ll positively enjoy the Red and can always make fun Pintrest projects with the Green!
