Our Wine Of The Week is 2018 Robert Mondavi Napa Valley Fumé Blanc, a superior blend of 87% Sauvignon Blanc and 13% Sémillion. As you would expect from a Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc, there is a tease of grapefruit and tropical flowers on the nose, plus grapefruit, apple, peach and herbs on the palate. Being a balanced, dry white there’s also a little flint to make it a solid wine for pairing with light foods in winter or summer. I made use of the bottle pictured as a refreshing sip and nacho chaser during last weekend’s 49er’s game. It was that good.

The 2018 and 2019 vintages retail around $23.
