2011 Franciscan Estate Napa Valley Chardonnay
Aromas: Inviting aromas of citrus, Golden Delicious apple, vanilla, and subtle spice from the toasted oak draw you in. Delicate mineral and lemon-lime are hidden behind star jasmine and honeysuckle notes.
Flavors: Fresh, vibrant, and complex with flavors of pear tart, apple, and lemon. The finish is round, yet crisp, with a silky mouthfeel and hints of flinty mineral, vanilla cream, and honeydew melon lingering on the persistent finish.
