Franciscan Estate Chardonnay 2017.
Franciscan is one of Napa Valley's most venerable wineries, reaching back more than three decades. Franciscan wines take their signature style - rich, vibrant flavors framed by supple tannins - from the ideal climate offered by Napa Valley's cool, southern half and from the time-honored tradition of small-lot winemaking, blending from hundreds of barrels to craft fine wines that fully express the classic Bordeaux varieties.
Nose: Aromas fill the glass with rich bright fruit, minerals and cream with honeyed pear-apple.
Palate: Bright and vibrant palate shows rich flavors evoking apple galette, honey, and creamy vanilla bean.
Finish: Full and round with a rich mouth-feel and a long finish of Asian pear with toasty oak notes.
