Review: 2014 Freemark Abbey Chardonnay Napa Valley
Freemark’s latest chardonnay offers a bit more mineral character than your typical California chardonnay, with notes of white grapes, white florals, and honeysuckle, before slowly fading into light caramel, vanilla, and gentle oak notes. The 2014 bottling rides the line between traditional Napa chardonnay and, say, a New World pinot grigio — which is either curiously intriguing or entirely heretical, depending on your point of view.
