Ferrari-Carano Reserve Chardonnay 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Carneros|
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.
