WINE REVIEW: Ferrari-Carano 2019 Chardonnay, Sonoma County, CA ($22)
by Andrew Chalk
Ferrari-Carano’s 2019 Chardonnay is a truly versatile wine, making it an ideal choice for spring. This wine is composed of grapes from 60 different vineyard lots in Sonoma County that are blended together to create one full-bodied, delicious Chardonnay. It delights with aromas of citrus, pear, vanilla, graham cracker, and buttercream perfectly balanced by vibrant, rich ﬂavors of baked apple, apricot, cinnamon, and hazelnut. It pairs perfectly with seafood, poultry, white meats, and dishes with cream sauces.
Appearance: Light-gold hue, bright;
Nose: Lemon, mango, jackfruit, cream soda, vanilla;
Palate: Ripe, sweet fruit, moderate phenolic backbone, medium acid.
