  The Robert Mondavi Winery was founded in 1966 after a family split with the Charles Krug Winery, which had been founded by Robert’s father.  After heading out on his own, Robert settled on land in Napa valley, and in particular the famed To Kalon Vineyard in the Rutherford district. The original plot in To Kalon Vineyard was only 12 acres, but today there are 450 acres under vine. The Robert Mondavi Winery also includes the Wappo Hill Vineyard, which is a 400 acre plot in the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley. Within a year of its inception, the Robert Mondavi Winery proved to be a true pioneer, not only with the establishment of his winery but also by introducing and popularizing the use of French oak barrels for wine, European wine techniques, and the bottling of varietal wines. Robert Mondavi Winery only uses French Oak barrels for storing wine, and his influence and success led to the practice’s prevalence. Among Mondavi’s greatest successes one would have to count the creation of the Fume Blanc moniker for Sauvignon Blanc as well as the introduction of his benchmark Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet. Today Robert Mondavi’s legacy is carried on under the watchful eye of his wife who works with the current winemakers Genevieve Janssens, Gustavo Gonzalez, and Richard Arnold to ensure that today’s Robert Mondavi wines deliver the elegance, appeal, and character that Robert had intended.

In contrast to the 2001 this edition of the To Kalon Sauv Blanc has more ripe fruit, but it’s also bundled up a bit tighter. There’s a light, smoky wood tone on the nose with hints of peach, lime and lime zest. With air subtle floral, geranium petal, and almost saffron like notes emerge from the glass. On the palate this is rich and ripe with softer acids than the 2001 but still very vibrant. It’s got a youthful, taut linear feel to it with excellent intensity of flavor. On the backend a salty, mineral note emerges and gives this an almost margarita like quality with the blend of citrus fruit and that geranium, vegetal tone. This really needs time to show at its best. 92pts

Tasting Notes:

Pronounced tropical aromas are followed by waves of similarly rich flavors—pineapple, coconut, zesty lemon, a bit of mango and orange pekoe tea. Mouthcoatingly creamy with lively acidity, this is a vibrantly stylish wine that bespeaks a superlative vintage and the distinctive terroir of the famed To Kalon Vineyard.
