Woah! Talk about a fish out of water with this Fume Blanc. These grapes are sourced from one of the most prestigious and historic vineyards in Napa Valley. Wine Advocate notes, "beautiful white peaches, pink grapefruit and guava scents wiht hings of orange blossoms and wild thyme. The palate is medium to full-bodied with a satiny texture and tons of peachy flavors, finishing long and perfumed." 93+ pts WA. 

 

Winery notes on the vineyard:

This wine is a true expression of our To Kalon Vineyard's historic Robert's Block, our renamed T Block first planted in 1960. When Robert Mondavi chose the To Kalon Vineyard as the home for his new winery in 1966 he remarked: “It was a vineyard with a distinguished history and a magical nature. Ideal soils, sunlight, and rain—to my eye, the vineyard was a treasure.” Situated on prime benchland in west Oakville, the low fertility, well-drained soils combine with optimal sun exposure to yield rich, complex flavors and peak fruit maturity. The dry farmed, head-trained, cane-pruned vines on Robert's Block offer purity of varietal expression, great concentration and depth of flavor. A small amount of fruit was selected from our equally historic I Block, for its key contribution of minerality, length and elegance.
