Winemaker'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
