Ferrari Carano Sonoma Fume Blanc 2012
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.
Great buy. Crispy and Zesty. Semi Sweet Grapefruit and a smooth honeydew on the finish. Great on the nose. I'm a traditionalist with my Sauvs and I felt like this was a great display of traditional California Sauv Blanc. The price was a bonus.
Ferrari-Carano’s 2012 Fumé Blanc has aromas of orange blossom, quince, white peach, Meyer lemon and mango complemented by flavors of pineapple, pear and guava. This wine has bright acidity and crisp freshness from the cool, stainless steel tank fermentation, while the subtle oak character from barrel aging adds, body, complexity and depth. ~ The Winery ~

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.
Ripe pear, yellow apple and citrus zest notes are lively, refreshing and aromatic, with a nice thread of acidity and good intensity on the finish. Drink now.
Zesty flavors and aromas of grapefruit, citrus and honeydew with a lingering finish of mango and guava.
The delicious 2012 Fume Blanc exhibits lots of melon, pineapple and fig notes in an exuberant, fresh, lively, medium-bodied style revealing no notion of oak in either the aromas or flavors. Drink this delicious, consumer-friendly, textbook Fume Blanc over the next year.
