Wine Review: This golden yellow colored Chardonnay from Ferrari-Carano opens with butterscotch and caramel apple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, rich and fresh. The flavor profile is a blend of pineapple and white peach blend with notes of saline, oak, and toasted almonds. I also detected a hint of pear and tangerine. The finish is dry, and its flavors and acidity show very nice length. This Chard would pair well with a pan-seared halibut with a garlic crab topping. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This wine entices with aromas of vanilla, buttercream, apricot, graham cracker and toasted marshmallow followed by elegant, upfront ripe flavors of pear, peach, apple, orange blossom and brown sugar on the finish. The cool climate of Napa Valley Carneros imparts its unique finesse to the wine, while the Sonoma County component adds a rich mouth filling character. In addition to a wide variety of appetizers, shellfish and poultry dishes, Reserve Chardonnay pairs perfectly with richer foods that enhance this fuller bodied and deliciously creamy wine.
