Sauvignon Blanc
Napa Valley

5 cases produced

Highlights

  • This single-vineyard, estate grown Sauvignon Blanc is our smallest production wine from Oso Vineyard
  • The vines’ lineage dates back to the first plantings in the Napa Valley from renowned Château d’Yquem
  • Your wine is 100% Sauvignon Blanc
  • This is the only wine produced by Rob Mondavi Jr. from the 2020 vintage

This is the ultimate expression of small lot winemaking, a winemaker’s true calling and artistry offered to Premiere Napa Valley. This wine begins in the vineyard, with vines meticulously planted by Michael and his family in 2004, attributed to rootstock with origins stemming from the esteemed Château d’Yquem in Bordeaux, whose cuttings first made their way to California in the 1880s with famed vintner Charles A. Wetmore. Aromas of tropical fruit, such as guava and nectarine, mixed with citrus aromas of lime zest and blood orange, are already showcasing in this wine’s youth. The robust palate displays unprecedented depth and complexity, amazing texture and a long, lingering finish. This is a wine built to age away in the cellar, but drinking impressively well in its infancy.

Rob Mondavi, Jr.

Winemaker, Michael Mondavi Family Estate

Winemaker, Rob Mondavi, Jr.

As a winemaker, I first consider myself as a wine drinker, asking what do I want to drink and what do my friends want to drink, and then I select the vineyards, fruit maturity and all winemaking decisions based on the desire to create mesmerizing wines for myself, friends and family.

Country born: United States

Education: A non-classic winemaking background at Santa Clara University, miscellaneous chemistry and winemaking courses, but best of all a lifetime of experience in the cellar and vineyards.

Years in the wine industry: 15-20 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
My philosophy encompasses the amazing roots my family has planted, yet roots are not enough. Finding new ways to create cutting-edge wines is key and it is important to go beyond the style of wines that my forefathers created. If not, I would be disappointed in myself for not stretching the limits, as I would not have embraced the heritage to excel that was provided by my family.
