Bright on the nose and a bit waxy with some banana aromas floating under the perfumey oak. Entering the mouth with strong lemon curd, melon and peach flavors in a soft, moderately creamy style that is broad in the mouth, this is silky and fairly rich, with lots of flavor but not overpowering weight. The midpalate shows a blip of tannin along with notes of ripe apples and almond butter leading to a nice, long, soft finish. 89pts

If never wanting for ripeness and long on heady young varietal fruit this solid effort plays juicy apples and a streak of caramelly oak against plenty of freshening mildly citrusy acidity. It is fairly full-bodied and starts out on a rounded almost oily note but it never gives in to softness and while a very attractive wine at the moment it has a sense of reserve that bodes well for a few years of keeping.

Reverberates with fresh, lively green apple, pear, peach and citrus notes. Complex, layered and persistent. Drink now through 2018.

The 2011 Frank Family Vineyards Chardonnay is pale yellow in color and delivers aromas of apricot, apple and pineapple, laced with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and hazelnut. The palate is bright and elegant, with succulent fruit flavors of baked apples, quince paste and hints of spice. A perfect level of a creamy texture in the mouth, and the bright, fresh acidity give this wine great balance and provides a persistent finish.

Aromas of apple, pear, vanilla, caramel, orange blossom, quince, hazelnut explode from the glass. Rich and fresh on the palate, the wine exhibits bright fruit, lemon drop, baked apple pie, has a smooth and creamy mouthfeel, and long finish.

Winemaker Notes - Frank Family Vineyards' 2009 Napa Valley Chardonnay is abundant and vivacious; it opens with aromas of citrus blossom, honeysuckle, white peach, and pippin apple. These vibrant aromas are countered by orange peel oil, roasted hazelnuts, and poached pears with Tahitian vanilla bean sauce. The palate is luscious, smooth, and lively; bursting with stone fruit, kumquat, and Pink Pearl apple Tarte Tatin, the mid palate expresses country scones with warm lemon curd and fresh baked sugar cookies, and the finish lingers exposing notes of toasted nuts and subtle hints of smoke, while being accented by wildflower honey throughout.

Clean and vibrant, with rich fig, honeysuckle, melon and light citrus notes that give it an elegant mouthfeel, gaining depth on the finish. Drink now through 2010.

The least expensive Chardonnay, the excellent 2007 Napa (20,000 cases produced) offers notes of poached pears, white peaches, and citrus oil in a medium-bodied, crisp style revealing hints of honeysuckle and spice. Complex, well-balanced, and flavorful, this is a serious Chardonnay to enjoy over the next few years.
