Franciscan has its roots deeply embedded in the soil of Napa Valley. Founded over three decades ago, wine industry revolutionaries Raymond Duncan and Justin Meyer shaped the winery’s beginnings. In 1985, renowned vintner Agustin Huneeus took over the reins, leading the winery to greatness through innovation and a commitment to small-lot winemaking. Today, Director of Winemaking Janet Myers is preserving the winery’s legacy while leading it into the future. “We inherited a craftsman’s ethic here: work with nature, work in small lots, innovate. Our uniqueness depends on the details,” she says. All of Franciscan’s winemakers have left their individual marks, but all have remained true to Franciscan’s signature: bold wines with the rare combination of rich, vibrant flavors yet fine, supple texture.

I had the Oakville, which has a different label than what's seen here, but the wine said Oakville, so I am reviewing here. Nice example of a good chardonnay. Rich, buttery and oakey. Very tasty!

Quintessential California Chardonnay. A touch of oak, great fruit and a clean finish. This full-bodied wine hits the spot after another exhausting New York day!

Franciscan Chardonnay Oakville Napa Valley Complex and nicely concentrated with a blend of power and finesse, it yields elements of spice, apple, pear and nutmeg.
