Zesty lemon, tangerine and pink grapefruit lift from the glass only to draw you back in for exotic pineapple and mango. A touch of fresh, springtime grass brings dreams of warm days with each sip. Raised in the hallowed and historic To Kalon Vineyard, specifically the Robert’s Block first planted in 1960, white wine lovers will rejoice over this deliciously complex treat.

Robert Mondavi founded his namesake winery in 1966 at the age of 53. He wasn't flush with cash, but he had a big dream. He envisioned that a more gracious lifestyle can be lead through the appreciation of wine, food and art. When he came to Oakville in the Napa Valley he saw the land upon which he could build his dream winery and make wines to stand shoulder to shoulder with the best wines from around the globe. Well, the Italian farm boy made good, launching what would become the first major winery in the Napa Valley after the end of Prohibition. Robert Mondavi Winery revolutionized the world of American wine by focusing on quality grape cultivation and embracing hospitality as a part of the wine business. At their Oakville estate, styled in homage to the missions of early California, the warm spirit of hospitality is ever present. Drop by, they'd love to see you.

James Suckling

Tight and reduced with sliced green melon, hints of lemon curd and fennel. Some stone. Full-bodied, layered and beautiful. Chunky and unique. From vines planted in the late 1940s. Decant before serving.
