Wine Review OnlineThe Mondavi fumé style was the inspiration of the late Robert Mondavi and remains true to his vision today. It has a definite touch of oak, just enough to provide an inviting backdrop for the complex aromas of the Sauvignon Blanc grape (with a touch of Semillon). This vintage exhibits aromas of citrus and tropical fruits, with a grassy back note and a stony mineral quality.

Wine SpectatorIntense and mouthwatering, with aggressive green apple skin, saline, honeysuckle and white grapefruit flavors that pack a wallop of acidity and herbal elements, showing plenty of follow-through on the finish. Drink now. 14,848 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThis blends 92% Sauvignon Blanc and 8% Sémillon, the two barrel-fermented for richness and layering. Lemongrass, wet stone and apricot mingle well together around supportive acidity that's bright and substantial. Creamy and lush, it finishes clean.
