Wine Review: This yellow colored Chardonnay opens with a fragrant ripe Bartlett pear bouquet with a hint of apple. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, crisp and flavorful. The flavor profile is a tasty Bosc pear with nicely integrated mild mineralty throughout. I also detected hints of green apple and white pepper. The finish is dry and rather pleasant. This Chardonnay is very food friendly and would pair very well with Emeril's Maryland crab cakes. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: The 2010 Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay from Sonoma County has superior lots of wine from our vineyards in Alexander Valley, Russian River Valley and Carneros. This full-bodied Chardonnay has delicious aromas of apple, orange blossom, pear, marshmallow and a hint of graham cracker, perfectly balanced by flavors of lemon, peach, honey and lingering, creamy toasted oak notes.
