Ferrari-Carano Vineyards & Winery Chardonnay 2009
Formerly called our “Alexander Valley Chardonnay”, this 2009 Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay boasts 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. A full-bodied Chardonnay, this wine delights with aromas of apple, a hint of graham cracker, floral notes, and honey, perfectly balanced by flavors of lemon and pear on the entry and lingering, creamy marshmallow, toasted oak notes. This versatile, full-bodied Chardonnay pairs perfectly with seafood, poultry, white meats, and dishes with cream sauces. Try preparations that include citrus, butter, cream, cheese, bacon, roasted garlic, mustard, nutmeg, thyme, basil, or toasted nuts.
External Reviews for Ferrari-Carano Vineyards & Winery Chardonnay
This wine's toasty scents of lees fade into clean flavors of lemon and apple custard. It's a citrusy, buttery chardonnay for grilled fish.
Aromas of orange marmalade, honeyed lemon blossoms, and baked apples emerge from the fruity, medium to full-bodied 2007 Chardonnay. It possesses fresh acidity, a heady finish, and no obvious oak. Drink it over the next 1-3 years.
This winery's first big success was with Chardonnay and it is still their most consistent wine. Apple, pear and citrus fruit combine in a ripe and mildly oaky style that is very hard to resist. Serve this wine alongside swordfish steaks with lemon, oregano and capers.
Offers a lively beam of rich fruit supported by crisp acidity and layers of pear, apple, nutmeg and hazelnut flavors that are intense and concentrated, gaining richness on a long, firm finish. Drink now through 2009.
Brilliant yellow-gold, with ripe, fleshy golden apple, pear, citrus and spice flavors that are focused and well-defined, ending with a dash of toasty oak. Drink now.
This gentle, balanced and very fine wine displays consummate artistry in winemaking. It has enough fruit, oak and creaminess to satisfy that Chard craving, without any one element sticking out, and manages to be big while retaining finesse and elegance.
Also screw-cap finished, the 2008 Chardonnay Sonoma exhibits abundant citrus blossom, poached pear, honeysuckle and tropical fruit characteristics in a medium to full-bodied, juicy, pure, heady style. This delicious Chardonnay should drink well for another 1-2 years.
