Wine Review: Ferrari Carano is on quite a role with us this year and this red blend is another high scoring winner. This very dark opaque purple colored wine opens with a musty old oak and mild black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very well balanced, savory and silky. The flavor profile is a delicious black cherry with notes of vanilla. There were also a touch of blueberry and light oak mixed in for fun. The finish is quite dry and its lengthy fine tannins sail away quite nicely. This wine would be a perfect match for a NY strip steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Ferrari-Carano presents its finest blend of the five classic Bordeaux varietals 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. Delicious aromas of Bing cherries, blueberry preserves and an herbal, black tea leaf nuance combine with an elegant mid-palate of fresh-picked berry and roasted mocha notes. With a full bodied and richly-textured tannin profile, this wine's upfront silkiness and roundness make for a delicious selection now and will drink well for 7-10 years.
