fresh and crisp with grassy notes and fresh pear, light peach and grapefruit tones . Bright, a touch small in the mouth and perhaps just a whisper of unneeded sweetness. Round and fruity style, nothing wrong here simple, easy, with some subtle grassy and sweet herb tones. Short finish. Clean and simple 84pts

This offers up plenty of green fruits and grape fruit on the nose with a hint of mineral smoke but is a bit simple. On the palate it’s snappy and fresh with nice acid cut but like the nose is a bit on the simple side. It’s got nice balance and a decent finish, and while serviceable, isn’t very exciting 86pts

Possibly my slight aversion to white wine, but this tasted rather like green peppers to me. I don't care for green peppers. Also got a bit of citrus, too.

    it is a nice white wine with a crisp taste that is not too sweet. it is perfectly refreshing on a hot summer day without the sweet after taste of most white wines.

    Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. Attractive scents of kiwi and Meyer lemon with wispy highlights of greens, minerals and toasty oak are followed on the palate by a supple-textured, firmly backboned wine whose crisp edges and still developing minerally, grassy, citrusy flavors are pleasant on the one hand and promise to get better on the other. Put a few bottles of this one aside; it may take a few years, but the wine is likely to find real refinement in time.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.


    11/13/2010

    Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. Surprisingly dilute for a wine that has long been at the very top of the Mondavi brand, this one speaks quietly to green melons and hay but also delivers a whiff of refrigerator water, and things do not get any better on the palate. Soft, a bit watery and on the pinched side, this latest edition is a shallow version of what the label used to deliver.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

    Bright, pale yellow. Pungently fresh aromas of grapefruit peel and gooseberry. Juicy and firmly built, with brisk flavors of grapefruit, lemon drop and citrus peel. Finishes firm and persistent.

    Features pear, melon, and spice oak with an emphasis on round, rich flavors and beautiful balance.

    Intense floral, mineral, and tropical fruit along with spice notes from old vines rooted in To Kalon vinyeard terroir. Silky viscosity from Semillon. Complex, creamy finish. 76% Sauvignon Blanc 24% Semillon

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Im Geschmack präsentiert er sich sanft, vollmundig und wunderschön zugänglich, mit saftiger Frucht (Kirschen, Erdbeeren).

    Tasting Notes:

    A wine that does justice to the Fumé Blanc tradition here at Robert Mondavi Winery. Expansive aromas of verbena, melon, and honeyed grapefruit crescendo to flavors of passion fruit, lemon grass and a glimmer of Temple orange. Supported by the minerality distinctive of the To Kalon Vineyard and the lush generosity of Sémillon, this electric wine has exceptional palate appeal with uplifted fruit and herbal notes indigenous to its legendary provenance. Bright fresh straw in color but with a clear density of texture on the glass
