Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay Chardonnay California 2008
Formerly called our “Alexander Valley Chardonnay”, our 2008 vintage Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay is now labeled with a Sonoma County appellation, as we’ve added superior lots of wine from our vineyards in Russian River Valley and Carneros, combined with Alexander Valley fruit. And for the first time ever, our Chardonnay is now embellished with a screw cap in order to retain the freshness and fruit character of this delicious wine. With upfront apple, pear, honey, butter cream, and honeysuckle floral notes, this wine is perfectly balanced with fruit and creamy caramel, marshmallow and a lingering, toasted oak finish. Food Pairings: This versatile, full-bodied Chardonnay pairs perfectly with fish, poultry, white meat and pasta entrees.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Vanilla, oak, pear, golden apples some pineapple, bannana tropical fruit rounder and more fruit like than the honig sauvignon blanc I had earlier
External Reviews for Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay Chardonnay California
Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. Compact young fruit with a dash of lees and hints of a steely, citrusy, piquant orange edge to the more dominant green appley aromatic character signals a fairly tight wine on the palate and that is exactly what one gets. It is fairly brisk in feel and slightly juicy in styling with a clean, balanced but somewhat attenuated finish. Try it with pan-grilled trout.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.
"Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. Exhibiting a somewhat lighter touch than its cellarmate above but just about as full in body and sharing in that wine's energetic finish

Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. Exhibiting a somewhat lighter touch than its cellarmate above but just about as full in body and sharing in that wine's energetic finish, this one favors green apples, roasted grains and a kiss of sweet oak in its aromas. Its glyceriny texture at entry adds a bit of viscosity and the firm fruit flavors carry well across the palate and into a fairly polished finish. Time is on its side, but it drinks nicely even now.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
Here's a bottle of California's favorite white in a ripe and rich style. It's complex and concentrated, with lovely pear, apricot, tangerine and melon flavors that gain in opulence and pick up a pleasingly spicy note. Drink now through 2002.
Another delicious blockbuster Chardonnay from Ferrari Carano. This has that classic California style: fruit, butter, and vanilla.
Elegant, even delicate in style, this northern Sonoma-grown Chardonnay shows a tasty mix of spicy pear, apple, melon and light oak shadings, finishes with a complex interplay of fruit and oak. Drink now through 2000.
