Select lots of grapes are chosen from our vineyards in Sonoma County to
create this beautifully-balanced and full-bodied 2009 Ferrari-Carano Merlot.
This is a velvety wine with a complex nose of cinnamon candy, cherry cola,
blackberry preserves, and exotic spices. A juicy, slightly viscous and rich
mouthfeel is followed by notes of bittersweet chocolate, mocha and tobacco.
This wine has full, generous tannins that coat the palate, impressive length
and lasting acidity.
The fruit forward, easy drinking qualities of our Merlot make it the perfect
wine to pair with any red meat course, Italian entrée, and roasted or grilled
fragrantly-spiced poultry dishes.
