The grapes for Ferrari-Carano's Reserve Chardonnay come primarily from a single vineyard in Napa Valley's Carneros region. Comprised of four Chardonnay clones, this wine displays aromas of hazelnut, spice, ripe apple, orange blossom, fig and butter with elegant, upfront flavors of sweet pear, lemon and a lingering, toasted oak finish. The cooler climate of Carneros imparts delicacy and finesse to the wine, while the Alexander Valley component adds an intensely rich mouth-filling character. Aged in 44% new French oak and 56% older French oak, this has a lovely balance of oak, fruit and acidity.

Wine SpectatorOpens with spicy, toasty oak that lends depth and dimension, leading to shades of green apple, spice, pear and melon on the finish. Loses a little texture and suppleness while maintaining a persistent focus. Drink now through 2020.

Wine EnthusiastThick and moderate in structure, this wine is fleshy, lush and tropical in nature. Swirled in butterscotch, vanilla and caramel, the oak is toasty and supportive.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chardonnay Reserve presents warm apricot, melon and pink grapefruit notes with touches of butterscotch and toasty oak. Medium-bodied, it delivers a good core of stone fruit and oak inspired toastiness with a pleasantly oily texture and good length. It's an old-school, commercial style that is done well.
