Ferrari Carano Fume Blanc 2009
Wine Tasting Notes Zesty flavors and aromas of tropical fruit such as kiwi, gooseberry, pineapples and mangos with a hint of grassiness are complemented by creamy citrus notes. Aging partially in stainless steel and older French oak gives this wine a crisp freshness and a subtle oak character that addes great complexity and depth.

Rating: 86/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. Here again is a Sauvignon Blanc that seems a little too young to drink, for while it is pert, very fresh and fit with a keen streak of varietal grassiness, it is also a bit stiff at the edges. Drink it now if you must with simple fish dishes, but it should be a friendlier wine sometime next spring.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
Medium-light yellow color; attractive, forward, intense, grassy varietal aroma with notes of ripe melon, kiwi, and citrus; medium-full body; rich, grassy, slightly tropical, citrus and honeydew melon flavors with good depth and a slightly creamy, silky mouthfeel; well balanced; crisp finish; lingering aftertaste.
Peaches and fresh pea flavors embrace the palate in this light-bodied wine. On the finish are echoes of grapefruit and melon. Drink now.
The 1997 Fumé Blanc is a medium-bodied, graceful, citrus/melony-scented and flavored wine with good intensity, fine definition, and an abrupt finish. Drink it over the next year.
Ripe and fleshy, with plenty of richness to the floral, sweet pea, fig and melon flavors that fold into vanilla and cream tones. Drink now.
Pretty peach, melon, fig and citrus flavors are framed in distinct herb and earth tones here. The wine is quite assertive, with plenty of grassy character. It's a style that may not be for everyone, but is nonetheless appealing in its genre.
