From the beautiful, historic site planted to some of the oldest vines of the variety in Northern California, this delicious white explodes in juicy green apple and an intensity of fresh-squeezed lemon. That succulence lingers atop a lengthy, salty texture wrapped in subtle, supportive oak. *Editors' Choice* (VB)
The 2016 Fume Blanc Reserve comes all from the To Kalon vineyard and includes 7% Semillon. It’s another impressive white that has a Loire-like vibe in its lemon grass, crushed lime, citrus pit, and subtly mineral-laced aromas and flavors. It has terrific cut and focus on the palate and is an outstanding, serious Sauvignon Blanc.
Mondavi’s Fumé Blanc Reserve was one of the first high-quality Sauvignon Blancs - or as Mondavi called it, Fumé Blanc - in Napa, serving as a pioneering catalyst in the movement with this variety. The 2014 version is a beauty, with the texture of a Chardonnay, luscious honeysuckle, lemon blossom and tangerine oil notes, medium body, beautiful concentration and purity, and a long, dry, authoritative finish. This is a winner to drink over the next 4-5 years. Drink through 2021. (RP)
