Winemaker's Notes:

Formerly called our "Alexander Valley Chardonnay", our 2008 vintage Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay is now labeled with a Sonoma County appellation, as we've added superior lots of wine from our vineyards in Russian River Valley and Carneros, combined with Alexander Valley fruit. And for the first time ever, our Chardonnay is now embellished with a screw cap in order to retain the freshness and fruit character of this delicious wine. With upfront apple, pear, honey, butter cream, and honeysuckle floral notes, this wine is perfectly balanced with fruit and creamy caramel, marshmallow and a lingering, toasted oak finish.
