Franciscan Estate Cuvée Sauvage Chardonnay 2012
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Carneros|
A classic Napa Valley Chardonnay, this is smooth, rich, balanced and well composed. Flowery aromas of honeysuckle open the way for lemon curd and ripe apple to compete with a depth of crème brûlée character that provides plenty of complexity, with additional accents of honey and spice.
Offers aromas of smoke, butterscotch and flint, with green apple, spice, pear and melon flavors, shaded by light cedary oak nuances. Drink now through 2020. 5,145 cases made.
