A nicely rounded Fume with riper stone fruit, Meyer lemon, fresh cut hay and white flowers. 91 points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Fantastic Napa Valley Fume Blanc from the god father of Fume Blanc, Robert Mondavi. This wine shows crisp and dry with mouthwatering acidity. Stone fruit, citrus notes, flinty minerality, and integrating alcohol declared at 14.5%. A complex Sauvignon Blanc well worthy of enjoyment. Pair with smoked mackerel, smoked oysters on garlic crustini, seafood Cioppino. Easily drinking on it's own likewise. Tasted March 2017. 91 points.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A pretty pale straw colour with green reflections and long, clear tears. A bright bouquet featuring: Lemon citrus, green apple, green beans, flowery honeysuckle blossoms with a lingering hint of soft smoke. On the palate - pear, gooseberry, grapefruit pith, dried grass and hints of hay and flint-driven minerals. Medium plus acidity, medium minus body and bone dry with herbal and zingy fruit persisting into the finish. A great pairing with smoked soft rind cheeses and crab cakes. - tasted February 2018
Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lovely fumé blanc, which is an oaked sauvignon blanc. Beautiful aromas of stone fruit, citrus, vanilla and caramel. Rich, round mouthfeel with fabulous acidity for balance. Zippy citrus flavours, smooth stonefruit and rich oaky caramel on the palate. Delish wine, perfect for seafood dishes.
Devlon rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Buttery mouthfeel, lingering finish but don’t care for the nose of it...too much onion for me.
This is fantastic value for this dry Robert Mondavi Fumé Blanc from Napa Valley. Nice nose of lemon pie with riper stonefruit, Meyer lemon, white flowers, gooseberry and a light grassiness on the palate . So flavoursome. - Community Wine Reviews
