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.

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.
Fragrant notes of apricot, rose and citrus explode in your nose while spices, sweet honey and crisp green apple flavors tantalize the palate.
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.
Our Chardonnay was crafted from grapes grown in California's cool-climate Central Coast American Viticultural Area (AVA). The nose reveals ripe apple, melon, citrus and tropical fruit aromas enriched by creamy malolactic tones, spicy French oak nuances and enticing baked bread scents. On the mouthfilling, creamy palate, rich tropical fruit flavors buttressed by toasty oak tones create a lush impression, which is balanced by a long, crisp finish imbued with the refreshing minerality typical of Central Coast Chardonnay. Enjoy this delicious wine with rich seafood, poultry and pork dishes, white-sauce pastas like fettucine Alfredo and flavorful, soft-ripening cheeses.
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.
The emphasis is on fruit, especially citrus, melon and tropical fruit flavors with floral characteristics. Barrel aging adds spiciness and toasty, creamy nuances.
