Napa Cellars Napa Valley Chardonnay 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
The Napa Cellars 2016 Chardonnay displays the classic Napa Valley Chardonnay characteristics indicative of this region. Aromas of peach, bright apple, and graham cracker excite the senses. Flavors of pear, crème fraiche, and pie crust are complimented by a creamy texture with balanced acidity and a nice, lingering finish of crème brulee and white peach. This is the perfect wine to pair with a Camembert French cheese plate drizzled with local honey and almond halves, or with panna cotta topped with fresh berries for dessert.
Pear and melon flavors punctuate a touch of spritzy acidity that gives freshness to an otherwise moderate framework of ripeness. Vanilla oak highlights the finish.
The 2016 Chardonnay is scented of waxed lemons and toasty oak with a waft of applesauce. Medium-bodied, it has an uncomplicated apple-laced palate and a lively finish.
