Frank Family Vineyards Chardonnay Napa Valley
(From 2012 Vintage) Big and rich, ripe peach and citrus fruit aromas and flavors merge with layers of toasty oak spice on the lush and velvety finish.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesElements of ripe apples and a hint of creme brulee in the nose make for a fine start here, and the wine follows with like-minded flavors that emphasize moderately deep and well-defined appley fruit. Smoothed early on by a touch of glycerin and slightly fleshy in feel, it finishes with a scant edge of youthful coarseness, and it will benefit from another year of age that should bring it a bit more refinement.
