Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay Dominique 2006
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines, Jul 05 Nicely concentrated and well-defined appley fruit is framed with a fine measure of oak in the full-volume aromas of this easy-to-access youngster, and, once in the mouth, it follows accordingly with lively, medium-deep flavors that are long on fresh apples and deftly fit oak. If thoroughly enjoyable now for its youthful immediacy, it has the depth and balance to insure a year or two of positive growth.
For full bodied fruit oaky Chardonnay fans this is always on their favorite list! The wine maker’s and others notes capture the wine’s quality, although I don’t pick up nearly the apple seemingly suggested by the wine maker. As with most better quality Chards not over chilling is important and this wine’s full character presents at cool, but not overly so temperature.

The 2006 Alexander Valley Chardonnay is a delicious wine with floral and fruit aromas of pear, Fuji apple, citrus and honey graham cracker with a hint of rich caramel and toasted coconut marshmallow. Generous on the palate, creamy vanilla undertones balance layers of toast and spice on the finish, while the tropical flavors linger to the end. - Winery ** Only 4 in Stock **
Wine Tasting NotesIn keeping with our classic style of Chardonnay, we have blended fruit from eight of our most prized vineyards in Alexander Valley, Russian River Valley, Dry Creek Valley and Napa/Carneros. This Chardonnay is a fruit-focused offering with tropical overtones of papaya and mango supplemented by toasty almond flavors. It is a wonderfully complex wine with impressive balance and length.
