2012 Franciscan Estate Chardonnay Napa Valley
Aromas: A fruit-forward bouquet of Meyer lemon, Bartlett pear and crisp apple mingle with hints of vanilla and flinty mineral notes. Toasted almond rounds out the nose, evoking the creaminess that is to come on the palate.
Flavors:/ The palate is bursting with vibrant fresh pear and citrus flavors with a mouthfilling, creamy, round palate. Bright fruit flavors and a silky texture lead to a lingering finish of apple, honeysuckle and vanilla.
