Robert Mondavi Pinot Noir California Private Selection 2012
"Our Pinot Noir was produced primarily from grapes grown along California’s marine-influenced Central Coast. Reflecting the character of a cool vintage, which fostered the development of classic varietal aromas and flavors in our Pinot Noir grapes, this vivacious red wine’s hallmark is fresh, vibrant fruit. On the nose, lovely rose petal, strawberry, and sour cherry aromas mingle with complementary scents of smoky oak. Soft and round with good length and richness on the palate, enjoy this delectable Pinot Noir with grilled salmon, herb-roasted chicken, baked ham, or lighter pork dishes." -Winery
Very nice Central Coast pinot grigio. Light, crisp, airy with lemon peel, ripe peach and touch of grapefruit. Good mid-week drinker, especially for the price.
Passable pinot for the price range. Typical and uninteresting. Too Bright.
Two and a half glasses

Tis wine is bright and fresh with rich mid-palate flavors of lime, grapefruit and melon that pick up a spicy peach tone in the long, crisp, mineral- tinged finish.
