Robert Mondavi Winery Chardonnay Napa Valley
Deep yellow colour; Aromas of anise, citrus, cooked apple and tropical fruit; Dry, full bodied, with nice balance of tropical fruit and oak; crisp acidity on the long spicy finish.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(2006 Vintage) Slightly toasty first notes are joined by a vanilla custard-like scent in the surprisingly low-key aromas of this ripe, but quietly fruity, full-bodied wine. It comes with a full measure of supportive acid and a nice sense of backbone, but it never quite convinces that it has the stuffing to open up into greatness, and its past success notwithstanding, it trails the best here.
