The 2012 vintage honors Mr. Mondavi’s legacy in full, showing remarkably high aromatics: a lush, floral and tropical mélange intertwined with lime zest, wet stones, fresh herbs and lemon curd. The generously fruity, mouthfilling flavors feature an intriguing, textured minerality, the creamy richness lifted by lively, refreshing acidity. Lingering fresh lime and lemon verbena finish.
We take full advantage of the complementary characteristics of the fruit from our Wappo Hill vineyard, in the Stag’s Leap District, and that from our renowned To Kalon vineyard at the winery, in the Oakville District. Together, they make up over 90% of the blend. We look to Wappo Hill for the bright citrus and herbal flavors and refreshing sense of lift that has made Sauvignon Blanc a classic. The beautiful fruit from our To Kalon vineyard adds richness, weight, age-ability and increased complexity, bringing in layers of floral, tropical, mineral and lemongrass flavors to the blend.
