I've always enjoyed Mondavi wines, but this bottle is an exception .

Theirs nothing appealing about this one, so I'll vacuum seal it and place it in the farthest.......
Corner of my fridge. Sooner or later it will end up in a sauce for a recipe. No other notes.

Perfect wine to relax at home with. Standard, nothing special, but great for its price.

Fruity and delicious. Low acidity and really drinkable. Nice casual wine to kick back with.

I was so impressed with this wine. Then I read the reviews. Not sure why it’s not receiving more love. I found it fabulous. Smells like cherries n plums. Tart then sweet. Was sitting there thinking about the flavor then realized it had a chocolate/mocha after taste. Some wines say this but this one was the first to deliver. Was rich n delicious. I absolutely love this wine. Not one to just drink frivolously. This wine is a good one to savor and enjoy. It is rich so I do recommend eating before or with. Enjoy!

Is a little young and reacts beautifully to decanting or even resting in a large bowl glass. This really is enjoyable.
