Ferrari Carano Cabernet

imagewinemaker’s notes:
Ferrari-Carano Cabernet Sauvignon comes primarily from mountaingrown fruit in Alexander Valley. Ripe black cherry aromas delight along with fresh boysenberry, spicy elements of clove, cedar and tea. Up front flavors of juicy blackberry, vanilla and cola are complemented by lingering notes of dark chocolate. This wine has excellent viscosity and smooth, pleasant structure with refined, yet generous, layers of tannin.

Blend: 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Syrah and 2% Petit Verdot

alcohol by volume: 14.5%
critical acclaim:
“This smooth, polished Cab boasts a tasty mix of forward ripe plum, black cherry and berry fruit that’s easy to drink, ending with cedar, road tar and tobacco notes. Drink now through 2020. 18,250 cases made.”

“Soft and smooth in tannins, this Cabernet is made in a drier, earthier style than many others. It displays classic blackberry and cedar flavors, and will benefit from a brief decant.”
