A Winco discovery

I’ve read for some time about Mondavi wines, and yes they do span the gamut of the wine spectrum from fine wines to the proverbial patio pounder.  This one is the latter.

Full disclosure, this wine was priced at less than $7.50, so I didn’t have very high expectations.  I am as surprised as anyone that this is actually pretty good.

I got mild aromas of citrus, like grapefruit, lemon and perhaps white peach.  The structure is surprisingly solid as well.  Acidity is a touch high, but it just serves to make your mouth water for more.  The flavor profile is muted, but still evident.  Again that mild citrus and a hint of stone fruit.  All in all I kinda liked it.  Better than some I’ve tried at 3x the price.

So, if you are looking for a bulk buy for a BBQ or outside party . .consider CK Mondavi.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1513876162292{margin-top: 50px !important;margin-bottom: 50px !important;}”][vc_column][vc_progress_bar values=”%5B%7B%22label%22%3A%22Flavor%22%2C%22value%22%3A%2270%22%2C%22color%22%3A%22mulled-wine%22%7D%2C%7B%22label%22%3A%22Value%22%2C%22value%22%3A%22100%22%2C%22color%22%3A%22mulled-wine%22%7D%2C%7B%22label%22%3A%22Locations%22%2C%22value%22%3A%22100%22%2C%22color%22%3A%22mulled-wine%22%7D%5D” caption_pos=”thin_top”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][dt_fancy_title title=”Photo Gallery” title_align=”left” title_size=”h3″ title_color=”accent”][vc_media_grid element_width=”2″ grid_id=”vc_gid:1518554972601-b5dd48b4-aa90-0″ include=”15164,3151,3138,5,3119″ css=”.vc_custom_1513876882333{margin-top: 30px !important;}”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
