Robert Mondavi Winery Johannisberg Riesling Monterey County Private Selection 2007
The Robert Mondavi Private Selection range wines embrace the best characteristics of their distinctive vineyards on California's Central Coast, where cool fog and ocean breezes create a long growing season that results in grapes of intense flavour concentration. The unique geography and fascinating history of California's Central Coast give the region a character as distinctive as its wines. Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, this wine is aged in French Oak barrels prior to release. The result is a delicate, clean, crisp wine with aromas of pears and melons and the trademark oak-ageing gives the wine a nice toasty finish.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
This is OK but a little boring. If you just want to drink red it's Ok but nothing stands out.
An okay riesling, nice controlled sweetness with hints of some tropical fruits like melon.
Excellent QPR on this fresh, off-dry riesling that is under $10 a bottle. Aromas of apple, litchi and honey. Apple, lime zest, and peach palate. Long juicy finish.

External Reviews for Robert Mondavi Winery Johannisberg Riesling Monterey County Private Selection
Frank and enjoyable for its racy, mineral-scented pear and herb flavors.
Bright pale gold color. Medium-bodied. Balanced acidity. Moderately extracted. Pineapple, vanilla. Floral accented nose. Generous pineapple flavors predominate with some subtle vanilla oak influence. Crisp and clean finish.
An aggressive, lean wine, with grapefruit aromas and flavors. Powerful fruity, spicy flavors attack; no or low oak. Crisp and very dry; tart and clean. A wet-your-whistle wine at an attractive price.
This wine exhibits vibrant flavors and crisp acidity with fruit aromas reminiscent of citrus, pear and melon with a hint of spice that adds interest with each sip.
Pretty plum, honey, lemon and spice flavors form a core element here, with a tangy, tad-bitter finish.
Refreshing floral, melon and peach notes highlight the enticing aromas and crisp, lightly sweet flavors of our Robert Mondavi Private Selection Johannisberg Riesling.
Our Riesling exudes the fresh apple, pear, orange blossom and litchi fruit aromas that make Rieslings grown in cool-climates so delightful. Monterey County's long, cool growing season produced grapes with especially concentrated flavors, giving our Riesling an impressive weight on the palate, despite its moderate alcohol content.
