2018 Mondavi Napa Valley Fume Blanc

May 15, 2020 - Norman Bentley

There was a time when I could name all of the wineries in the Napa Valley, as well as all of the grapes grown there. That was a long time ago! The wine world has gotten quite large in the last forty or fifty years, and the term "Wine Connoisseur", or "Wine Expert" has taken on new meaning. One thing which has not changed in the last few decades, is that I am still enjoying Robert Mondavi Napa Valley Fume Blanc, and have been for more that thirty years!

The nose broadcasts an array of fragrant notes throughout the room, with the pronounced emphasis on citrus and apple. The flavors are rich and complex with apple and lime, and a touch of juicy ripe peach. There is an overlying layer of lemon zest and a very refreshing, clean finish The alcohol content is 13.5%, and Norm's score is 89.

A bottle of Mondavi Fume Blanc and a piece of grilled salmon make a mighty fine repast! We enjoyed both, alongside a fresh avocado and tomato salad.

score: 89

price: $18 - $23
