Wine Review: This deep yellow colored Chard opens with a mild spicy pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, and slightly crisp. The flavor profile is green apple with notes of minerality and a hint of lemon. The finish is dry and quite refreshing. Our mini group thought this offering had a European style to it. They suggested pairing it with Coquilles St. Jacques. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Formerly called our "Alexander Valley Chardonnay", our 2008 vintage Ferrari Carano Chardonnay is now labeled with a Sonoma County appellation, as we've added superior lots of wine from our vineyards in Russian River Valley and Carneros, combined with Alexander Valley fruit. And for the first time ever, our Chardonnay is now embellished with a screw cap in order to retain the freshness and fruit character of this delicious wine. With up front apple, pear, honey, butter cream, and honeysuckle floral notes, this wine is perfectly balanced with fruit and creamy caramel, marshmallow and a lingering, toasted oak finish. This versatile, full bodied Chardonnay pairs perfectly with fish, poultry, white meat and pasta entrees.
