Wine Review: This gold colored dessert wine opens with a very fragrant ripe apricot bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, viscous, and rich. The flavor profile is a very sweet and lush apricot with notes of tangerine, honey, and raisin. The finish remains sweet and lingers for quite a while. This botrytised offering is quite rich and is a dessert by itself. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our 2007 Ferrari-Carano Eldorado Gold comes from Sonoma County and is a blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Eldorado Gold created when a beneficial mold, botrytris cinerea, infects the grapes, evaporating water content and concentrating sugars, acids and flavors. Intense aromas of dried apricot, nutmeg, pralines and maple are complemented by honey, orange peel, pear and vanilla bean. A long, lingering finish echoes dried apricot and honey, along with caramel and pecans.
