Robert Mondavi Winery Riesling Private Selection 2013
Editorial Reviews for Robert Mondavi Winery Riesling 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 Central Coast pinot grigio. Light, crisp, airy with lemon peel, ripe peach and touch of grapefruit. Good mid-week drinker, especially for the price.
Passable pinot for the price range. Typical and uninteresting. Too Bright.
Fairly light Pinot without much body. Some bright red fruit, cherry, strawberries, and a bit of acidity.
Nice easy drinking chardonnay. Not too complex, some oak, some butter, decent acidity with white peach, lemon zest and a hint of apricot. Very good quality to price ratio.
dark nose of plums, blueberries....dark ruby red color...silky tannins with hints of vanilla...leads to a moderate finish
Lots of juicy fruit flavors with a nice hint of spice. The nose had hints of apple and pineapple which carried over to the taste. in addition there were hints of pear, lemon, lychee, and a nice spicy finish that reminded me of cinnamon and cloves. Will be buying more of this one

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.

Robert Mondavi created the first fume Blanc in 1966 - a crisp, barrel-aged, wine that captured the vivid character of the Sauvignon Blanc grape. Our Fume Blanc exhibits bright citrus, melon, floral and mineral character from Napa Valley vineyards and a silky texture from sur lie barrel aging.
The wine displays aromas and flavors of creamy pear, green apple, melon and citrus fruit, mingled with notes of subtle toast, butter and yeast from malolactic fermentation and sur lie aging. The vivid fruit characters and hints of zesty, clove-like spice lead to a crisp, refreshing finish. Enjoy this delightful Chardonnay with crab cakes, simply prepared fish and poultry, and a wide variety of cheeses, including Brie and Camembert. 99% Chardonnay, 1% aromatic white varieties.
Soft and friendly, the '05 Robert Mondavi Private Selection Chardonnay is a solid example of great value wine; serve with light seafood entrees.
Fresh, mouth-watering flavors of white peach and kumquats ensconced in creamy texture. Vibrant and expressive, with a beautiful balance of weight and zesty acidity, this elegant wine closes with a long, memorable finish.
