Robert Mondavi Winery, Napa Valley Chardonnay, 2014
The Back Label: “Tantalizing ripe Asian pear, red apple fruit and crème brulée mingle beautifully with toasted almonds and hazelnuts, a touch of lemon rind, and ginger spice…”
sipping sun Having Sipped: This white wine is full-bodied, has a low acidity, and runs smooth all the way down. Citrus notes are light while the spices are vibrant in every sip, and a mild sweetness is detected. The oakiness is evident. This wine paired nicely with last week’s pesto pasta dish, a savory concoction nonetheless; however, this wine can stay for dessert. Just one glass (filled 1/3 to half-way, about 5 oz.) will hit you quickly as the alcohol content is rather high.
