Intense primary aromas of lemongrass mingle with the subtle scent of lime blossoms and hints of sage and spice. Mouthfilling flavors of crisp yellow peach are couched in a very smooth, rounded texture. Thanks to the small Sauvignon Blanc yields of 2008, flavors are concentrated and the wine is already very expressive in its youth.

Wine Spectator

Concentrated and robust peach, citrus, golden raisin and apple flavors have a firm structure and refreshing juicy acidity. Smooth and sophisticated, with a long, spicy finish. Drink now through 2012. 50,543 cases made.

Score: 88. —MaryAnn Worobiec, June 30, 2010.

Wine Enthusiast

Shows the classic Mondavi Fumé profile of dryness, crispness and minerality undergirding lemongrass, lime, vanilla and honeysuckle flavors. There's also a strong hit of pyrazine, which some people are sensitive to.

Score: 86. —Steve Heimoff, March 01, 2010.
