A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon,
8% Syrah and 7% Petit Verdot.
The fruit for our 2006 Ferrari-Carano Cabernet Sauvignon comes primarily
from mountain-grown fruit in Alexander Valley. Fog drifts over the tops of
the coastal mountains and burns off quickly in the morning sunshine,
resulting in a warm climate with almost full sun throughout the day – ideal
conditions for our cabernet sauvignon mountain vineyards. With aromas of
blackberry syrup, boysenberry, spicy black currant, espresso, and caramel,
this wine delights with rich, delicious flavors of Bing cherry, chocolate, toffee
and anise. A delicious mid-palate, excellent depth and showy tannins characterize
this lovely Cabernet Sauvignon.
Our 2006 Ferrari-Carano Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with roasted,
broiled or barbequed heavy game and red meats such as lamb, beef, pork
and veal. Medium and strong-flavored cheeses, such as blue cheese or sharp
cheddar, also pair nicely with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Smooth & Supple
Very jammy on the nose with black cherry, plum, black currant, some vanilla; It was rich and medium-bodied on the palate with firm tannins, blackberry and black currant fruit, spice, and a little chocolate. Lengthy finish with a hint of espresso. This is a nice wine with the classic cab characteristics. We had it with Italian food, garlic bread and salad...it was a hit. It paired really well with the meal, but didn't overpower it. Nice wine, good value...I enjoyed it.
