Robert Mondavi Winery Johannisberg Riesling Monterey County Private Selection 2008
Editorial Reviews for Robert Mondavi Winery Johannisberg Riesling Monterey County Private Selection
Pretty aromatic are a touch toasty with nice almond shell tones backing up apple blossom, lime, pear, and a touch musky papaya fruit. This is lean on entry with snappy acids that overpower the mid-palate just a touch. There are nice notes of crisp apple and again slightly exotic musky papaya fruit on the mid-palate with a touch of bitter minerality on the backend that become more aggressive and chemical like on the finish. This is a lean, style of Pinot Grigio where the acid is a bit too prominent. 83pts
Very nice wine. Crisp apple on the nose and palate. Very fresh. Had it with pasta.
Sprite apple and banana on the nose, this uncomplicated offering provides nice acidity complete with apple, butter and melon as it slides across the palate. Nothing to rave about, but for a cheap, mass produced wine this provides one of the better choices for a Mondavi option. 85.
Really nice apple aromas with a buttery, toasty taste. One of my favorite chardonnays.
The nose is light and melony, with pear and crisp celery, and fresh-cut grass. Strong and buttery on the mouth with pleasant acidity and mild oakiness.
Light grassiness with notes of peaches and limes. Very fruity with peach notes, but ultimately lacking on the finish.
Nice balance between fruitiness and smokiness.
I tried this at a friend's party, and it is a favorite now. I love to try new wines, but when I want something reliable that I *know* I'll enjoy, I grab one of these cuz I always keep it in stock. I don't keep track of the year - when I see this 'reserve' label, I'm never disapointed.

Rather raw and sharp, a young wine with carbonic tastes of jammy fruit and berries. Itrsquo;s smooth in tannins, and an easy sipper.

Crafted in an approachable, fruit-flavored style that invites immediate enjoyment. The pure expression of berries, plums and violets in the wine, with delicate spice nuances, is captured from Syrah grapes grown in Californiarsquo;s Central Coast vineyards.

This Chardonnay emphasizes fruit with citrus, melon, and tropical fruit with floral characters taking central stage. Barrel aging adds spiciness and toasty, creamy nuances.
Creamy and soft, with fragrant lemon meringue, pear and sandalwood notes. Good value. Drink now.
