2011 Robert Mondavi Winery Chardonnay Chardonnay Reserve

Carneros more

4/20/2014 - JohnB85 Likes this wine: 85 points

Appearance: Clear, bright & pale lemon in colour.

Nose: Clean, medium aroma intensity, aroma characteristics cover toasted butter, crisp buttered pastry scents, ripe pineapple, green melon & lemon juice, baked cooking apples with a touch of vanilla. Developing.

Palate: Dry, medium (+) acidity, high alcohol, medium (+) body, medium (+) flavour intensity, flavour characteristics of buttered ripened pineapples, green melon with white pepper, baked red apples & vanilla spices. Texturally the wine has a prolific creamy, mouth-coating viscosity which leads to complex medium (+) finish.

Quality Level: Very good

Reasons for assessment: Texturally complex viscosity, the body of wine is balanced and integrated with the acidity & finish, flavours are ripened and concentrated, however I think the alcohol is too generous & should be more delicate.

Level of readiness for drinking/potential for ageing: Can drink now but has the potential for ageing.

Reasons of assessment: It displays a premium quality & structure shown in wines with the potential to age. Specifically with the clear methods of MLF barrel fermentation, displaying typicity of region.

Grassy, herbal nose with some butter. A little acrid, but not too oaky, decent verve. Good balance. Satisfying, but lacks soul. Commercial, fruity, light. 84-85

1979 Robert Mondavi Winery Chardonnay Reserve

Napa Valley more

Tasted at Farmhouse Evanston from a pristinely stored bottle from Kent Cellars.
Darker golden color. Looked as though it may be heavily oxidized. Not the case.
This couldn't have been at a better point for a 1979 Napa Chardonnay.
Lovely nose of dark roast nuts and slightly dried fruit. The palate, however, is fresh and much more vibrant still showing nice acidity believe it or not.

Interesting Chardonnay with strong notes of Asian pear, spice and Fiji apple. Quick finish that is crisp more like a Sancerre. Not your normal, everyday Chardonnay from Napa Valley.

Delicious. Drink now - starting to oxidize so open it up. Honey, straw, herbs. Intense, golden (Sauternes-like in color), stunning performance late in life.

Blind Tasting - Chardonnays; 12/24/2012-12/29/2012: Bright gold colored. It’s clear from the nose that this is an elegant and ageworthy chardonnay. The aromas shift with air, showing white flowers, dried mango and pineapple, orange blossom. There’s a brightness to the aromas that is fantastic. The palate starts off with pineapple and papaya flavors and a dense mouthfeel. The acid comes through on the midpalate. The hazelnut and coconut element of this wine are really interesting. I can’t remember a wine that tasted more like coconut milk than this wine. And I really like it. Very complex and delicious, although I’m wagering this could age for a few more years and really improve, as it’s quite compact right now.

Pale golden yellow color with beguiling apple, butter, floral along with hints of honey, oak and tropical aromas. On the palate it's med-bodied and impeccably balanced, with a creamy texture, very good acidity, with apple, tropical fruits and a bit of honey flavors. Med long finish. Great with Five Spice chicken and Asian style noodle salad. This is a fine food wine b/c it's not overly oaked.

Blind Tasting (Edina Country Club): Dark gold. Apples, floral and honey. On the palate picks up some orange peel. Some nice minerality as well. A good showing for a Chardonnay overal a decade old.

Clear straw colored with a bit of bite (for a white chard) upon opening the bottle. Initially, the strongest tastes were of Oak and lemongrass with a mineral aftertaste. Letting it breath a few minutes in the glass resulted in a smoother taste, more melon and nutmeg (?) flavors and a pleasant aftertaste. This wine, however, was excellent with seared rare Ahi with a white butter sauce and pickled white ginger.

Rich and buttery tones but on the leaner side and balanced by a shock of acidity. Lengthy finish. Well balanced and I appreciated the restraint with the oak. A pretty fine Cali Cab.

Brad brought over to celebrate Labor Day with Jill, Brill and Rob.
Really buttery, rich and oak driven in style - not really my thing.
Some enjoyable fruit and tropical action - pineapple, cotton candy and lightly roasted pear.
The palate is weighty and pretty over the top. Not recommended for me but everyone else enjoyed it.
