The best Mondavi reserve Chardonnay ever, this caps a string of excellent reserve Chardonnays made by Mondavi in the rsquo;90s. In 1994, its 1992 Chardonnay Reserve achieved the No. 52 spot. Always elegant, often compact in its youth, this wine gains richness and complexity with bottle age. Look also for the Napa Valley Reserve 1995 and the 1995 Carneros bottling.

Oaky and dramatic, but with a welcome touch of refinement, this beautifully balanced wine shows fruit somewhat eclipsed by wood, but the overall statement is one which will appeal greatly to those who prefer their chardonnays with a bit of butterscotch, most evident in the finish.

Fresh and snappy, with lively citrus, apple pie, and honeysuckle notes, this is medium- to full-bodied, gaining depth and texture and ending with a chorus of delicate fruit flavors. Drink now through 2018.

Lots of oaky richness in this detailed, highly enjoyable Chardonnay. Itandrsquo;s tart and savory in acid-tinged lemondrop candy, tangerine and Asian pear flavors, elaborated with sweet buttered toast. Elegant and upscale, a wine to drink now.

The best Mondavi reserve Chardonnay ever, this is compact at first, with tarty accented, ripe pear, apple and citrus notes. the flavors fan out on the finish, showing a good measure of elegance and finesse. Has a wonderful aftertaste where the flavors linger long. Put a couple of bottles away for 1999 to 2000.

Ripe, with complex pear, fig and pineapple flavors that are smooth and polished, gaining nuance and elegance on the finish where the flavors fan out. Drink now through 2002.

Displays vivid layers of tropical fruit, citrus, hazelnut and exotic spices. Gentle stirring during barrel fermentation and a year of sur lie aging in Burgundian barrels weave complex, toasty oak nuances through the opulent fruit character.
