Frank Family Vineyards Napa Valley 2008 Chardonnay


Frank Family Vineyards
2008 Chardonnay, Napa Valley

While ageing on the lees in Napa Valley, this wine was hand-stirred regularly to promote depth and longevity. The resulting Chardonnay is vivacious, opening with aromas of citrus blossom, honeysuckle and white peach. A luscious palate bursts with flavors of kumquat and apple tarte tatin, with a mid-palate that exhibits warm lemon curd and sugar cookies.

Rating: 14.5/20
