Mission Briefing

Codename:

Auspicious Debut

We are thrilled to mark the debut of Freemark Abbey Winery to TWS with today’s out-of-this-world good 2012 Napa Valley Chardonnay.

Freemark Abbey is a personal favorite of several of our Agents, and we couldn’t think of a better wine to feature than their excellent Napa Chard. To put it simply, this is what California Chardonnay should be. Rich, elegant, and incredibly smooth, today’s wine wowed our tasting panel, with a few members commenting that they couldn’t wait to enjoy today’s stellar wine all summer long.

Come see what all the hubbub is about with today’s Freemark Abbey Winery 2012 Napa Valley Chardonnay. At under $25, we just can’t recommend today’s wine highly enough!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Light straw yellow in the heart of the glass, with a touch of almost light green surrounding the edge of the glass.

Smell:

Beautifully aromatic, with bright fruit notes of green apple, banana, and fresh coconut framed by butterscotch, Meyer lemon zest, sweet vanilla bean, and a touch of brioche.

Taste:

Clean, lively, and impeccably well balanced, with fresh white peach, Meyer lemon, and Asian pair joining nutmeg, vanilla bean, wet river rock minerality, buttery brioche, and a touch of caramel. Throughout, there’s a lovely undercurrent of toasted oak.

Finish:

Incredibly smooth and supple on entry, with a lengthy finish and fantastic oak integration. Chardonnay fans - this wine will deliver for miles.

Pairing:

Sautéed scallops, served with roasted cauliflower and a touch of herbal butter drizzled overtop.
