Ferrari-Carano Fume Blanc 2004 review (PB)

This Sonoma offering is straw colored in the glass with generous fragrances of pineapple, mandarin oranges and the classic Fume Blanc ( also known as Sauvignon Blanc) “grassy” aroma.

In the mouth this wine is supple with nice mouth feel and big pineapple and quince flavors. It is really well made with a nice balance of everything in the wine. To top it off, right before the finish there is a Creamsicle finish that is just plain classy.

I paid $12.50 for this value wine at Sam’s Club though you will pay around $15 for it elsewhere. Either way it is worth it! Wine Spectator gives this wine a deserved 91 points. So quit procrastinating, quit reading, and go buy a half case of this at least! THEN, and only then, raise a, raise several glasses!
