Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay 2008
Wine AdvocateAlso screw-cap finished, the 2008 Chardonnay Sonoma exhibits abundant citrus blossom, poached pear, honeysuckle and tropical fruit characteristics in a medium to full-bodied, juicy, pure, heady style. This delicious Chardonnay should drink well for another 1-2 years. While there is a lamentable tendency to call these wines "too commercial," the fact is the quality is high and there is good availability. I am a sucker for the pure deliciousness of Ferrari-Carano's offerings and no one could argue that this is not an important reason for drinking wines.
Wine SpectatorFresh, intense and vibrant, offering a mix of spicy herb, sliced pear and spice, with a touch of ginger. Full-bodied, ending with a pithy aftertaste.
