Robert Mondavi Winery Johannisberg Riesling Monterey County Private Selection 2009
Perfectly functional low-dollar wine. It doesn't taste like apple pie filling, but it definitely appeals to the sweet side.
Easy wine to drink. Easy oak flavors, decent fruit. Pick it up if you want an easy-to-drink Chardonnay!
Way too fruity and rich. Very cheap tasting.
This wine is not as fruity as I had hoped, however, it has more of a spicy taste to it so the complexity of the flavors make this wine unique. It starts off a little bit fruity then finishes with a nice clean, spicy flavor. Different, but not bad. I would try it again down the road.

External Reviews for Robert Mondavi Winery Johannisberg Riesling Monterey County Private Selection
This wine's creamy, baked apple flavors have a light sweetness, hinting at salted caramels. It's balanced in a soft style, ready to chill for roast chicken.
Plenty of spicy oak in this ripely fruity, basically simple wine. Aromas and flavors veer to tropical fruits and spice; technically, it's dry, but it gives the palate impression of honeyed sweetness. Crisp acidity completes the package.
Fragrant notes of apricot, rose and citrus explode in your nose while spices, sweet honey and crisp green apple flavors tantalize the palate.
The emphasis is on fruit, especially citrus, melon and tropical fruit flavors with floral characteristics. Barrel aging adds spiciness and toasty, creamy nuances.
This unoaked, low-alcohol Sauvignon Blanc is really elegant, and shows how you don't have to spend a lot to get a fine wine. It's dry, crisp and rich in lemon, lime, pineapple and vanilla flavors, with a savory creaminess from sur lie aging. A brilliant value; production was 77,500 cases.
California's Central Coast valleys have ideal weather for Riesling, producing enticing fruit and floral notes enhanced by slight sweetness and a crisp finish. Enjoy this delicately spicy wine with appetizers, cold smoked meats, pasta or crab salad, and strawberry shortcake.
This Chardonnay emphasizes fruit with citrus, melon, and tropical fruit with floral characters taking central stage. Barrel aging adds spiciness and toasty, creamy nuances.
