Pretty aromatic are a touch toasty with nice almond shell tones backing up apple blossom, lime, pear, and a touch musky papaya fruit. This is lean on entry with snappy acids that overpower the mid-palate just a touch. There are nice notes of crisp apple and again slightly exotic musky papaya fruit on the mid-palate with a touch of bitter minerality on the backend that become more aggressive and chemical like on the finish. This is a lean, style of Pinot Grigio where the acid is a bit too prominent. 83pts

Very nice Central Coast pinot grigio. Light, crisp, airy with lemon peel, ripe peach and touch of grapefruit. Good mid-week drinker, especially for the price.

Savory herbal aroma, mineral attack with mild acidity in the mid-palate.

Came across very light with little to no flavor or bite. Some citrus came out after letting it warm up a bit but still not much here.

The nose is light and melony, with pear and crisp celery, and fresh-cut grass. Strong and buttery on the mouth with pleasant acidity and mild oakiness.

Robert Mondavi created the first fume Blanc in 1966 - a crisp, barrel-aged, wine that captured the vivid character of the Sauvignon Blanc grape. Our Fume Blanc exhibits bright citrus, melon, floral and mineral character from Napa Valley vineyards and a silky texture from sur lie barrel aging.

Tis wine is bright and fresh with rich mid-palate flavors of lime, grapefruit and melon that pick up a spicy peach tone in the long, crisp, mineral- tinged finish.

This wine displays aromas and flavors of creamy pear, green apple, melon and citrus fruit, mingled with notes of subtle toast, butter and yeast from malolactic fermentation and sur lie aging. The vivi

Bright pale gold color. Medium-bodied. Balanced acidity. Moderately extracted. Pineapple, vanilla. Floral accented nose. Generous pineapple flavors predominate with some subtle vanilla oak influence. Crisp and clean finish.

This unoaked, low-alcohol Sauvignon Blanc is really elegant, and shows how you don't have to spend a lot to get a fine wine. It's dry, crisp and rich in lemon, lime, pineapple and vanilla flavors, with a savory creaminess from sur lie aging. A brilliant value; production was 77,500 cases.

They kept this one nice and crisp and basically dry, so it's a fine sipper at a fair price. The juicy flavors star, with spearmint gum, pineapple, lemon and lime fruit.

Winemaker's Notes:

Drawn primarily from the cool Central Coast, our Sauvignon Blanc has developed, concentrated flavors that were enhanced through cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
