W&S 93 WE 92 WS 90 Pts - According to Wine & Spirits - Grown at To-Kalon, where Mondavi planted what are now its oldest dry-farmed, head-pruned sauvignon vines in 1960, this is mostly from a younger planting on that site from the early 1990s. The wine barrel-fermented in older oak and aged ten months on the lees. So you’d expect a major oak presence and something creamy-rich. You get that, plus a persistence of nectarine and white peach flavor, creating a fascinating dynamic with the oak tannins, together enhancing the earthy character of the fruit.
92pts, The Tasting Panel - Lemon and Key lime ripe and tart with a juicy pineapple essence that rushes over the stone floor that lines the palate. Tarragon and clean, green herbs add character and rich texture and placates the high acidity. A wonderful vintage for an iconic wine.
According to Wine Enthusiast - This vintage of 92% Sauvignon Blanc and 8% Sémillon presents a savory study in herbal-laced lemon and melon, rich and ripe. Expressive and expansive, it combines balanced acidity with a dry finish, spicing things up with notes of lemongrass and almond. All fruit is sourced from the famed To Kalon Vineyard.
According to Wine Spectator - Crisp and vibrant lemon and grapefruit notes are balanced by a rich, spicy overtone that invokes flavors of coconut, marmalade and Key lime pie. Smooth and juicy, with a touch of passion fruit on the finish. Drink now. 92% Sauvignon Blanc & 8% Sémillon. 14.5% ABV.
