Wine Review: This opaque and very dark ruby colored red wine opens with a black cherry and black currant bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very smooth and balanced. The flavor profile is a fruit forward black currant and black cherry blend with nicely integrated oak. I also detected some blueberry and black pepper as well. The finish is dry and its flavors are very nicely prolonged. This wine would pair well with veal marsala. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Ferrari-Carano presents its finest blend of the five classic Bordeaux varietals – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc – from the best selections of our vineyards in Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys. Aptly named "Tresor" for "treasure," the grapes are hand harvested from dry-farmed, low-yielding vines primarily on our mountain vineyards. Vibrant aromas and flavors of red and black berries, black tea, cedar, earth, vanilla, blackberry and cassis, combine with a full mid-palate with considerable, round tannins. Lingering sweet oak notes of creme brulee and dark chocolate add great depth. This wine’s upfront silkiness and roundness make for a delicious selection now and will drink well for 15—20 years. Tresor complements lamb, beef and duck dishes that are roasted or braised.
