More Vintages and Sizes of Robert Mondavi - Chardonnay Napa Valley:
Author: Robert Parker
Tasting through Robert Mondavi's portfolio continues to reinforce my impression that this winery is undeniably the spiritual and qualitative leader of that sector of the California wine industry dedicated to producing world-class wines. What is so admirable about the entire Mondavi operation is that they continue to push their wines to higher and higher qualitative levels. Their nearly obsessive pursuit of bottling the wines with no manipulation has led to the majority of Mondavi's white wines being bottled without filtration - an extraordinary testament to their commitment to natural wines and superb quality. Mondavi has also inaugurated a line-up of Italian-inspired varietals (Barbera, Sangiovese, Pinot Grigio, Malvasia, and Tocai) in designer bottles. While the quality is good, those products have not yet hit the heights of the firm's other wines. Rest assured, that will change.
Robert Mondavi is producing three cuvees of Chardonnay - a Carneros designation, a Napa Valley designation, and the Reserve bottling from Napa Valley. The 1994 Chardonnay Napa is also meant to be a richly fruity style Chardonnay with more body, as well as a more honeyed style. This wine requires consumption within 1-2 years of bottling. All things considered, there is plenty to be excited about at the Robert Mondavi winery.

Young and vibrant, with a focused core of spicy pear, citrus and lemon flavors, picking up a trace of toasty oak on the finish. Impressive for its length.
