Ferrari-Carano presents its finest blend of the five classic Bordeaux varietals
– Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc –
from the best selections of our vineyards in Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys.
Aptly named "Trésor" for "treasure," the grapes are hand harvested
from dry-farmed, low-yielding vines primarily on our mountain vineyards.
Delicious aromas of blueberry, blackberry and cassis combine with a vibrant
mid-palate of roasted mocha and vanilla. With a full-bodied and impressive
tannin profile, this wine's upfront silkiness and roundness make for a delicious
selection now and will drink well for 15—20 years.
Upon entering the winery, the grapes are destemmed, hand sorted and then
whole-berry fermented in tank before pressing. Individual lots are moved to
barrels for malolactic fermentation, then blended and barrel aged in new and
older French oak for 20 months, allowing for the perfect balance of fruit
intensity, tannin suppleness and oak sweetness.
Our 2007 Trésor complements lamb, beef and duck dishes that are roasted
or braised. Try Trésor with strong-flavored cheeses such as Gorgonzola and
"A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc, the 2007 Tresor Proprietary Red is a deep, rich, full-bodied wine displaying notes of graphite, blueberries, blackberries, spice box, and background oak. It is a young, formidably endowed, moderately tannic effort that requires 2-3 years of bottle age. It should last 20-25 years. "
