Robert Mondavi Winery Moscato d'Oro Napa Valley 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): Pale color. Peach, licorice, menthol and pungent brown spices on the nose. Not hugely intense but sweet and sexy, with some CO2 spritz energizing the lightly saline flavors of yellow fruits, flowers and spices. A rather easygoing sweet Moscato with lovely perfumed length. (May/Jun 2014) Residual sugar: 9.6%. Alcohol 8.0%.

  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.

Flavor descriptors:Irresistibly fruity and floral, the sweetness of the wine dances lightly across the palate, liftedby vivacious, refreshing acidity. The heady bouquet of fresh white peach, rose petal, sweet orange blossom, spicy jasmine, exotic lychee and green apple spills out of the glass and segues seamlessly to the palate, finishing with a clean, lively tease of effervescence. - WineryTotal acid: 6.4g/LFinal pH: 3.24Residual sugar: 9.6%Alcohol: 8% by volume
