Flanagan Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
Reduced on the nose, this full-bodied wine is spicy, earthy, dark and dense, with strong flavors of Gravenstein apple and nutmeg. The aromas are floral, a hearty mix of honeysuckle and apple blossom.
The 2016 Chardonnay Russian River Valley is a little subdued at this youthful stage, offering subtle lemon pie and ripe apple notes with hints of coriander seed and raw cashews. Medium to full-bodied, it has just enough citrus fruit expression with soft acidity and a touch of spiciness to the finish.
