Robert Mondavi Chardonnay 2010, Napa Valley
This packs in virtually every element you might want in Napa chardonnay, in a very measured way. If you want ripe stone fruit (peach/apricot) fruit - check. Gentle smoky oak, caramel complexity - check. Spice and tobacco - check. And they are all wrapped in a fairly full, creamy yet still refreshing palate with fine acidity. A bit warm on the finish, but there is enough fruit, complexity and even a hint of minerality. Check. Very good to excellent length. Score: 90 (David Lawrason, WineAlign.com, Mar 2013)

The 2010 Robert Mondavi Chardonnay, sourced mainly from cooler regions in southern Napa Valley and aged in French oak after fermentation, has nice notes of subtle tangerine, yellow apple and subtle oak. It is light bodied, acid forward and has a finish of short to medium length. It is food friendly, drink now or for the next couple of years. My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL, 87 pts – on Limited Time Offer for $2 off until April 1st/13. Tasted March/13.
