Wine Review: This dark ruby colored 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Ferrari Carano opens with a blueberry and coffee bouquet with a hint of black cherry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, smooth and savory. The flavor profile is a black plum and oak blend with notes of mocha and black cherry. We also collectively detected hints of Bazooka bubble gum as well. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins linger for quite a while. The Panel suggested pairing this very good Cab with a pork tenderloin. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: PreVail Back Forty entices with a delicious array of intense aromas and flavors including blackberry, cassis, dark chocolate, jammy berries, cherries, nutmeg, brown sugar, leather, vanilla, cedar and spice. This full-bodied wine has a long, rich finish and smooth, mouth-coating tannins. Back Forty pairs well with roasted, broiled or barbequed red meats such as lamb, beef, pork or veal. You can also pair Back Forty with a dark chocolate dessert for a special treat.
