Amrita reviewed this wine:

Palate - medium bodied and very smooth, notes of dark fruits, cedar, some sort of a chocolatey finish. Would buy again.

Private Selection

Robert Mondavi Winery Private Selection Chardonnay 2008

Central Coast, California, United States

Amrita reviewed this wine:

Nose - some oak, some caramel / butterscotch, apples and honey? Palate - medium bodied, oak, butterscotch, not creamy enough for me? Sweet aftertaste. Overall - it's a nice wine to drink with food, but on its own I don't find it to be complex enough? I would prefer a bigger chardonnay, or a more refined one, but this is underwhelming to me.

Gnarly Head Merlot 2005

California, United States
2998 days ago

Amrita scored this wine: 100/100

Nose: All I smell is kirsch / cherries, almost like a light light port Colour: garnet? Palate: Not my favourite! Tastes like...cherries, blackberries, blueberries, with some mint and cedar underneath, however the tannins are too low, I find this almost a light bodied wine, with no finish. I can see why merlot is more herbaceous than other varietals - picking up some greenery and mint here. Not complex. I would not buy this again.

Gold Label

Wolf Blass Gold Label Riesling 2008

Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Australia

Amrita reviewed this wine:

Much drier than Loosen - more savoury notes than fruit. Refreshing acidity, made my mouth water. I liked this but would prefer more fruit flavours, but with this refined flavour
