Franciscan Cuvee Sauvage Chardonnay 2012 (750ml) Napa Valley
Delicate lemon yellow in color, the 2012 Cuvee Sauvage has aromas of crisp aromas of pear and apple fruit that combine with sweeter notes of creme brulee and honeysuckle. Fresh aromas of Meyer lemon awaken the senses before giving way to warmer notes of vanilla toast and spicy nutmeg. True to cool climate Chardonnay, this wine expresses elegant minerality in the form of crushed seashells. Flavors of ripe pear and apple pie fill the palate, complemented by sweet notes of cream, honey, and subtle cardamom spice. The finish is smooth, long, rich, and elegant.
