Ferrari Carano Fume Blanc 2010

Winemaker's 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.

Ferrari-Carano vineyard practices are customized to match the particular characteristics of each vineyard to help the vines produce the best fruit possible, and to in turn, achieve the best wine possible. Directed by Don Carano and orchestrated under the supervision of Steve Domenichelli, Director of Vineyard Operations, these practices are extremely labor intensive. Steve and his team implement irrigation and nutrient regimes, trellis system and canopy management, rootstock and clone combinations, and pruning and cane selection for each vineyard site and each block within a vineyard. Because of Sonoma County's diverse geological makeup, even within one vineyard parcel there may be several different types of soil with different degrees of nutrients for vines and water-holding capacity. In addition, Steve and his team practice sustainable farming techniques, such as recycling organic matter for use as mulch in the vineyards, planting cover crops and other plant species to avoid soil erosion, add desirable nutrients back to the soil and to attract desirable insects, and integrating animals to naturally enhance biodiversity and nutrient recycling.

Clear and very pale in the glass. To be expected grassy/green pepper nose. Very light on the palate. Slight grassy notes, some steely notes, some melony notes. Very slight tartness. Very quick finish but a very refreshing wine. $11.59 at Costco.

Whether you call this wine Fumé Blanc or Sauvignon Blanc after one taste you will love this one delicious wine. Ferrari-Carano makes a dazzling, concentrated Fumé Blanc with a rich, creamy texture, packed with honey and melon flavors. A very well-made and elegant wine.

Peaches and fresh pea flavors embrace the palate in this light-bodied wine. On the finish are echoes of grapefruit and melon. Drink now.

Bright, with a core of grapefruit, lemon and herb. Refreshing, offering hints of fresh-cut hay and a pretty, long finish. Drink now.

Aromas of lime, kiwi, citrus, melon and a touch of grass complemented by flavors of grapefruit, lemon and lime with a mango and guava finish. Cool, stainless steel tank fermentation gives this wine a crisp freshness while the subtle oak character from barrel aging adds complexity and depth. Made with 100% Sauvignon Blanc.

Here's a bright, crisp Sauvignon Blanc. It's dry and zesty, with pineapple, lime, sweet Meyer lemon, gooseberry and vanilla flavors. Partial aging in old oak adds a softening touch of cream.
