2015 Robert Mondavi Winery Fumé Blanc Napa Valley
Rich layers of fruit flavors of lemon crème, vine-ripened white peach and guava are joined by a subtle yet intriguing hint of ginger on a creamy wave of flavor.

The Mondavi fumé style was the inspiration of the late Robert Mondavi and remains true to his vision today. It has a definite touch of oak, just enough to provide an inviting backdrop for the complex aromas of the Sauvignon Blanc grape (with a touch of Semillon). This vintage exhibits aromas of citrus and tropical fruits, with a grassy back note and stony mineral quality.Robert Whitley - Wine Review Online, August 8, 2017

Pithy, with grapefruit and lemon peel flavors, this wine is deceptively crisp and light on the nose, offering a wealth of body and lushness on the palate, accented with nutmeg and peach. It includes 4% Sémillon, partly from the winery's beloved To Kalon vineyard.Wine Enthusiast, May 2017
