A junior version of the Stoney Creek bottling. It shares many of the same rich, fruity characteristics, but it's a shade less rich, and has a tarter, more angular texture. Still, virtually as good, and a few bucks cheaper.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Complex and spicy, with a nice range of flavors that go from grapefruit and pear to honey and spice. Concentrated, lively and full of flavor, with a long, full finish. Ready now through 1994.
