This is subtle smoky with some geranium stem notes and slightly woodsy tones under a layer of ripe, limy fruit. In the mouth this is rich and perfumed with a very smooth texture that makes it immediately attractive The fruits tend to the tropical with notes of pineapple, citrus and melon, though there are intriguing notes of white peach and green tomato adding depth and complexity. This finishes with a minor mineral flourish and lovely inner mouth perfumes of fresh herbs. 90pts

Nice typical warm climate Sauvignon Blanc aromas of ripe fruit, with notes of peach, melon and citrus in a rather intense, bright register. On the palate this adds a nice herbal, green fruit top note that adds some contrast to the rich fruit. The acidity is very bright , keeping this lighter weight wine nice and vibrant and helping to drive the finish, which shows a nice citrus final. 87pts

Classy fume blanc, barrel-aged for richness. Aromas of creamy citrus and melon with some tarragon and herbal notes. Fresh citrus and orchard fruits are in nice balance with the oaks, which is subtle and lends depth and complexity to the wine. Great with smoked fish.

This wine was courtesy of a great new value from my store down from 15.99 to 9.98, and was excited to give it a go. It recieved a 91 pt rating. I really enjoyed this wine, it was very unique in the strong acidity it posessed and bright fruit while combined still with a touch of nice cream and roundness from the oak touched. Lemon and lime with plenty of grapefruit. I overall did enjoy the smoothness and creaminess of this wine, but you have to be wanting to see this when you pick it up as a sauvignon blanc. I am one who enjoys oak on my chards so this was welcome for the touch it gave. One I think would be a great food friendly wine and even very great for drinking on its own. And at under 10 bucks an absolute homerun, and one I will surely recommend to others and try again.

Fresh, mouth-watering flavors of white peach and kumquats ensconced in creamy texture. Vibrant and expressive, with a beautiful balance of weight and zesty acidity, this elegant wine closes with a long, memorable finish.

Most of the fruit for this white comes from the Stags Leap district, which is known and loved for its concentrated, varietally correct Sauvignon Blanc. The wine shows pronounced gooseberry and melon flavors, with well-balanced acidity.

Ripe Sauvignon Blanc from Mondavi. On the back labelOur barrel-aged Fumé Blanc, stylistically different from the crisp, citrus notes of our Robert Mondavi Private Selection Sauvignon Blanc, features pear, melon and spicy oak with an emphasis on round, rich flavors and beautiful balance. <small> The most recent available vintage will be sent, it may vary from the vintage indicated above.

The enticing flavors of our 2007 Fume Blanc come from grapes grown in the heart of Napa Valley, with the majority harvested from the Wappo Hill and To Kalon estate vineyards.

91 points and an Editors' Choice from the Wine Enthusiast: `Always one of Napa's best Fum (Sauvignon) Blancs Mondavi's basic bottling is so good it tastes like it has some grapes from the famed Tokalon Vineyard. It's a rich pure wine brimming with gooseberry fig green melon and white pepper flavors accented with zesty acidity. Great food wine and a bargain at this price.` And according to Wine Spectator: `Zingy and refreshing offering a light-bodied mouthwatering version of lemon-lime pear quince mineral slate and herb flavors that are focused and intense. Drink now.`

Leuchtendes Gelb mit lindgrünen Reflexen, Grapefruit und Zitronengras in der typischen Nase, auch Holundergeist und zarte Vanille-Mangonote. Zartcremiger Auftakt mit reifer Ananas und Mocca, gute Balance in der vielschichtigen Mitte, Doldenblüten und kandierte Agrumen, edle Safransüsse im tänzerischen Finale. Enormes Fruchtspektrum, von frischer Zitrusfrucht über intensive Tropenfrüchte bis hin zu süssem Akazienhonig.
