Frank Family Vineyards Napa Valley Chardonnay 2016 Review

You just bit into a ripe green apple and the juice lingers in your mouth. That is this wine. It is a bit one dimensional, with the finish just as green apple-y as the nose. There is also a bit of earthy fig somewhere underneath the extremely high alcohol, which covers most of the would-be complexity. It is a fine wine for events where wine is in the background. Careful though, a few glasses of this and you’ll be dancing like Elaine Benes.
