Food Pairings for Ferrari-Carano Vineyards & Winery Fume Blanc Sonoma County
Straw colored in the glass with a pleasant nose. Crisp hints of apricot, pineapple, grapefruit and mineral. Zero finish. It does have a nice effervescent zing to it, but it's nothing I'd seek out again. - Schreiner's Winers "Springtime Sauvignon Blanc" Tasting 3/12/10
Welcome to the candy shop. This wine starts off like a Werther's Original creamy and caramel like. The finish is like a sour apple pop. You remember the kind that gets stuck on the roof of your mouth. Let the wine warm up a bit and you get nice hints of honeydew up front and crisp lime on the finish. For all of you Sauvignon Blanc fans who have relatives/sig others/friends who only drink sweet wines this is a great option for a wine that both you and they will enjoy. It's a deck smasher so drink it while the summer heat is here!
very earthy and smooth, enjoyed the citrusy flavors. I have enjoyed their Fume Blanc for years and always look forward to the new release.
External Reviews for Ferrari-Carano Vineyards & Winery Fume Blanc Sonoma County
Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. Compact young fruit with a dash of lees and hints of a steely, citrusy, piquant orange edge to the more dominant green appley aromatic character signals a fairly tight wine on the palate and that is exactly what one gets. It is fairly brisk in feel and slightly juicy in styling with a clean, balanced but somewhat attenuated finish. Try it with pan-grilled trout.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.
Refreshingly crisp, with lemon-lime, ripe peach, green apple and subtle herb notes. Therersquo;s good intensity and focus, with terrific acidity. Drink now.
Herersquo;s a bright, crisp Sauvignon Blanc. Itrsquo;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.
Ferrari-Caranorsquo;s 2008 Fumeacute; Blanc is an exotic, exuberant, richly fruity white offering notes of honeyed melons, candied orange rind, and sweet grapefruit, medium body, and a hedonistic style. Those looking for terroir and minerality may not enjoy it, but this is a pleasure-filled wine to consume over the next year.
Earthy, tropical varietal aromas, rich, fleshy, supple fruit flavors, lingering aftertaste. We have been going strong with this Sauvignon Blanc for well over a decade. Our customers love it!
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.
The best vintage of Ferrari-Carano's Fume Blanc in recent memory, this '04 is all about the fresh apple flavor of the fruit. There's a hint of wood spice, like nutmeg, and honeycomb savor. Through it, the fruit bristles with freshness and lasts. Great with boudin blanc, or anything you might serve with apple.
