Wine Review: This yellow colored Reserve level Chardonnay from Ferrari Carano was one of our top finishers in our first Big Blind Tasting. It opens with a very fragrant and appealing lemon mousse bouquet with hints of vanilla oak. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, ultra-smooth, and rich. The flavor profile is a very tasty lemon meringue pie with nicely integrated minerality and vanilla oak. We also detected some hints of apricot as well. The finish is dry and its flavors drift along for quite some time. The Panel suggested that they could drink a lot of this wine and they would pair it with lobster or pasta carbonara. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The grapes for the 2014 Reserve Chardonnay come primarily from our vineyard in Napa Valley Carneros. This wine has elegant, upfront aromas and flavors of quince, apple, cinnamon, caramel, citrus, butter, pear, vanilla, graham cracker, peach, creme brulee and hazelnut complemented by a lingering, toasted oak finish. The cool climate of Napa Valley Carneros imparts its unique finesse to the wine, while the Alexander Valley component adds an intensely rich mouth-filling character. The Reserve Chardonnay pairs perfectly with richer foods that enhance this fuller bodied and deliciously creamy wine.
