The Frank Family’s small batch wines aren’t always easy to find outside of their tasting room, but they’re always easy to enjoy. The Reserve Chardonnay bursts from the glass with compelling aromas of mango, pineapple and vanilla. The richly textured palate offers up magnolia blossom, honey and crème-brulee balanced by brilliant acidity. The finish is long and soft – savor it between sips with closed eyes and a sigh.

The biggest and richest Chardonnay in the lineup is the 2018 Chardonnay Lewis Vineyard. This beauty has loads of caramelized orchard fruits, white flowers, honeysuckle, and toasted brioche-like aromas and flavors. It’s medium to full-bodied with high yet nicely integrated acidity and a great finish. Give bottles another 6-12 months and enjoy over the following 4-6 years. This is a beautifully done Chardonnay.
