Medium lemon with aromas of stone and tropical fruits and floral notes. On the palate flavors of apple, peach and pear with lemon zest and toasty oak. Crisp, good balance, medium smooth finish ending with fruit and citrus tang. smooth ending, consistent good quality. Great value.

This wine has certainly had better vintages. For its price point it’s a touch angular with green vegetal notes. Also appears to me that the oak is out of balance and obtrusive. I usually like this bottling better. Hopefully upward next year.

Yeşil elma tadı ön planda olan meşe fıçıda bekletilmiş ve bu nedenle hafif isli ve kremalı tadı olan başarılı bir chardonnay

Golden straw with aromas of stone and tropical fruits. On the palate apple, peach and pear with lemon zest and gentle toasty oak. Crisp, good balance, medium finish with smooth ending.  The Mondavi Chardonnay is produced with consistent good quality and the 2014 is no exception. Great value.

Clear golden straw yellow color. Aromas of stone and tropical fruits. The palate shows Apple peach and pear with lemony nuances and slight toasty oak. Crisp, good balance, medium finish with smooth ending.  The Mondavi Chardonnay is produced with consistent good quality and the 2013 is no exception. Nice value.

Fine; don't taste much oak; some creaminess when the wine warms up

Green apple, Bosc pear, light toast and a hint of butter. Lovely with fresh Dungeness crab.

Dark nose with toasted oak. Oak and bitterness some acidity. Could have been better. $20 to $14

Very good integration between the French oak and the ripe fruit. Californian Chardonnay aren't the wood juice that they used to be anymore!
