‘G4,’ the fourth era of winemakers from the Mondavi household (particularly: consulting winemaker Angelina Mondavi), returns together with head winemaker Randy Herron for an additional assortment of wines meant to be equally approachable and reasonably priced. We have been lucky sufficient to attempt three of the 5 new releases for fall 2021. Let’s attempt them out.

2020 Flat High Hills Chardonnay – Light and fragrant notes of lemon zest and pear on the nostril give approach for a end of inexperienced apple and vanilla that fails to wear down its welcome. Delightfully in keeping with the excessive diploma of high quality Christopher explored in his 2020 assessment, and nonetheless a terrific purchase. A- / $14

2018 Flat High Hills Pink Mix – Autumnal notes of cinnamon and ginger on the nostril make approach for a beneficiant serving to of black cherry and raspberry on the palate. Letting the glass sit for a little bit of time mutes a number of the cherry affect and brings issues to a satisfying however barely prolonged end. B / $16

2018 Flat High Hills Cabernet Sauvignon – Fairly daring with notes of blackberry, currant, and a contact of leather-based on the nostril all preventing for consideration. Issues get a bit extra attention-grabbing on the palate with tart cranberry and plum alternating backwards and forwards, making for a dry and barely acidic end. Not for the faint of coronary heart and doubtless greatest served alongside a hefty portion of meat. B / $16

The advertising tagline for Flat High Hills implores me to “dwell impressed.” I’m not certain how to try this anymore, however I’m hoping by 2022 I’ll have figured it out. Till then, I’m pretty content material to have these reasonably priced choices alongside for the trip.
