Enjoyable Ferrari-Canaro Wine Tasting

Capellini with Shrimp, Tomatoes and Arugula

Capellini with Shrimp, Tomatoes and Arugula

Last night was the Ferrari-Canaro Vineyards and Winery online wine tasting. We tasted and tweeted about the 2014 Ferrari-Carano Fumé Blanc Sonoma County, 2013 Ferrari-Carano Merlot Sonoma County and 2012 Ferrari-Carano Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley.

Terry wrote haikus to describe the wines while I wrote brief descriptions. However, besides the quality of the wines I was very interested in the recipes that are on Ferrari-Carano website under Rhonda’s kitchen. The consensus of those tasting the wines and tweeting was that the wines were well-made and delicious.

The Fumé Blanc was used in the Mussels Poached in White Wine and the Capellini with Shrimp, Tomatoes and Arugula. For dinner last night Terry recreated the Capellini with Shrimp recipe. The Fumé Blanc and the other ingredients all blended together creating delicious flavors.

The Merlot was an ingredient for Grilled Spareribs with Balsamic Merlot Glaze and the Braised Venison Stew with Dried Cherries and Chocolate.

The Gorgonzola, Walnut and Cabernet Spread called for two tablespoons of Cabernet Sauvignon.

The next time you visit Sonoma County, be sure to stop for a visit and wine tasting at the Ferrari-Carano Vineyards and Winery. I know we will add the winery to our itinerary.
