Frank Family Vineyards Chardonnay Napa Valley 2008
Our 2008 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.
External Reviews for Frank Family Vineyards Chardonnay Napa Valley
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.
