Description
This iconic Napa expression is intense with a rich mouthfeel. It features toast, vanilla and roasted fruit tones along with ripe, bright apple, melon, lemon zest and tropical notes. The addition of roughly 15% Semillon adds a gorgeous silkiness to the texture. An intriguing classic, it will have good versatility at the dinner table and will work equally well with turkey dinner or grilled fish.
Tasting Notes
This is 50th Anniversary bottling is very appropriate for Fume Blanc in particular. It is a name Mondavi cleverly coined at a time when few Americans understood white Bordeaux (after which it is patterned) and even fewer had heard of a grape called sauvignon blanc. Fume was an excellent, French-sounding four letter word that referenced the smokiness obtained through barrel ageing, and also gave an insider's nod to Pouilly-Fume, the tiny Loire appellation famous for its sauvignons. This is quite full bodied, intense, dry wine with well woven, complex aromas of roasted herbs (rosemary), toast, vanillin and vaguely tropical guava/gooseberry jam fruit. It has some heft at 14.5% alcohol, plus very good acidity. The finish is lemon-lime, herbs and toast, hitting excellent length. Ideal [for] grilled white meats and fish. Score - 90.
