Ferrari-Carano: 2006 Tre Terre Chardonnay

Apr, 2009 Issue

Reviewer:
Tom Schmidt, Executive Chef of John Ash Restaurant in Santa Rosa.
 
“A perfect food wine, Ferrari-Carano’s 2006 Tre Terre Chardonnay is delicious with the Prosciutto Wrapped Scallops and Mango Sauce because of its significant fruit component. This is a terrior-driven Chardonnay showing earthy notes of mineral, green apple and citrus, complemented by rich and delicious flavors of fig, warm caramel, cinnamon spice and toasted almond.”

Jeff Reilly, Executive Chef of Equus Restaraunt in Santa Rosa
 
"This is an absolutely delicious wine. Surprisingly light tannins juicy jammy and smooth. The 2005 Alexander Crown Cabernet Sauvignon has the classic earthiness found in the Alexander Valley which pair nicely with roasted root vegetables while the mild tannins work fantastically with the lamb and the creamy polenta."

Jan, 2009 Issue

Reviewer:
Tai Olesky, chef and owner of Mosaic Restaurant & Wine Lounge in Forestville
 
"The bright red fruit of this Zinfandel lends itself to a perfect pairing with this dish. The wine has a wonderfully balanced acidity and soft, supple texture. I love the red raspberry and lightly spiced plum flavors right up front, ending with a cherry cola finish. What a great food wine!"
