Franciscan Cuvee Sauvage Chardonnay 2012

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

A classic Napa Valley Chardonnay, this is smooth, rich, balanced and well composed. Flowery aromas of honeysuckle open the way for lemon curd and ripe apple to compete with a depth of crème brûlée character that provides plenty of complexity, with additional accents of honey and spice.

Tart acids along with hints of pear, honeysuckle and quince emerge from this medium-bodied 2012 Chardonnay Cuvée Sauvage. Although aged 16 months in 100% French oak, the oak component is pushed to the background. This pleasant, young Chardonnay should drink well for 5–6 years.
