Winemaker's Notes:

Ferrari-Carano Cabernet Sauvignon comes from mountain-grown fruit in Alexander Valley. Delicious, ripe blackberries, blueberry pie, cassis and cedar aromas delight with a smooth and harmonious mouthfeel that boasts flavors of Bing cherry, boysenberry syrup, graham cracker and milk chocolate. Velvety tannins generously coat the palate while the finish is supple and long with vanilla and caramel notes from French oak aging.

Ferrari-Carano Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with roasted, broiled or barbecued 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.

Blend: 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Syrah, 4% Petit Verdot
