2009 Robert Mondavi Fume Blanc Reserve

Most people have tasted Robert Mondavi's Fume Blanc over the years, but to be able to sample the Fume Blanc Reserve from the famed To Kalon Vineyard is something quite special.  Mondavi put Fume Blanc on the map and the To Kalon Vineyard produces some of the best grapes in Napa Valley.  The 2009 vintage is absolutely delicious with incredibly fragrant floral notes that blend with lemon and mint.  Reserved flavors of pink grapefruit, lemon candy and dried herbs are present and blend beautifully.  The wine is bright with a definitive acid, but the finish is very creamy and smooth.  This wine is a stunning blend of 98% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Semillon.
