Winemaker's Notes:

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.

About Robert Mondavi Winery:

For more than 40 years, Robert Mondavi Winery has been the symbol of Napa Valley. Founded in 1966, it was the first major winery built in Napa Valley in the three decades following the repeal of Prohibition (1933), and went on to establish the foundation for modern California winemaking. Robert Mondavi Winery's mission-styled architecture, with the expansive archway and bell tower designed by Cliff May, has become an enduring landmark that honors California's history. With the philosophy that great wines reflect their origins, Robert Mondavi Winery pursues the fullest expression of the terroir of its Napa Valley vineyards: the historic To Kalon Vineyard in the Oakville American Viticultural Area (AVA), and the Wappo Hill Vineyard in the Stags Leap Vineyard AVA.
