Aromas were real pleasant with lots lemon zest and green apple. The mouth filled with the lemony citrus, some nectarine and very light toast and buttery vanilla ending in a medium to long buttery like finish. I opened this wine for a glass in the early afternoon and then paired nicely with a garlicky chicken stir fry.
Chardonnay's have always been tough for me. I find many are too buttery or creamy or even spicy at times in oaked Chards. I did not find that at all in this wine which was aged for 10 months in oak. The Robert Mondavi Private Selection Chardonnay is balanced very nicely and I very much enjoyed the light oak notes. What is even nicer is the price. The suggested retail is $11, but I found on line for as low as $8 with most outlets between $9 and $10 making this a remarkable value. Very Highly Recommended
