Winemaker Notes

Ferrari-Carano presents its finest blend of the five classic Bordeaux varietals – Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Cabernet Franc – from the best selections of their vineyards in Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys. Aptly named "Trésor" for "treasure," the grapes are hand harvested from low-yielding vines primarily on the mountain vineyards.

Vibrant aromas and flavors of boysenberry, cassis, anise, black cherry, and caramel come together with lingering plum on a long finish. This wine’s upfront silkiness and roundness make for a delicious selection now and will drink well for 15-20 years.

Trésor complements lamb, beef and duck dishes that are roasted or braised. Try Trésor with strong-flavored cheeses such as Gorgonzola and sharp Cheddar.

Blend: 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec, 9% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc

Tasting Panel
Grapes sourced from the best selections of Ferrari-Carano’s vineyards in Dry Creek and Alexander Valley’s resulted in one of the finest vintages yet for this Bordeaux varieties blend. Made up of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec, 9% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, this is the epitome of lush. The aromas of huckleberry, vanilla and espresso come forward with promise. And without disappointment, this red is generously mouth-filling. Plumped up plums, boysenberry and melted chocolate fudge gives an idea how sumptuous it is, with a hint of spiced tea on the finish for a touch of savory.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Tresor Proprietary Red is a Bordeaux-inspired blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. This wine does not have the power and sheer richness of the 2013 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, but is more approachable and seems to have more nuances and complexity at an earlier age. In addition to a dense purple color, beautiful sweet crème de cassis, blackberry and nicely integrated wood acidity and tannin, it has a touch of chocolate in the finish adding to the complexity. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.

Ferrari-Carano, Sonoma County, California
Image of winery
Family-owned and operated since 1985, Ferrari-Carano has been a leading producer of world-class, nationally acclaimed wines. From a small, 30-acre plot of grapes to the present 20 estate vineyards, Don and Rhonda Carano's success is based on their commitment to quality as well as the dedication of the vineyard and winemaking teams to make the finest wines, vintage after vintage. Ferrari-Carano owns vineyards in six appellations: Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley, Russian River Valley, Napa/Carneros, Anderson Valley and Mendocino Ridge.

Sonoma County

View all wine

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa Valley, the region only produces about half the amount of wine but boasts both tremendous quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

Bordeaux Blends

View all wine

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World, especially in California, Washington and Australia. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, these are sometimes referred to in the US as “Meritage” blends. In Bordeaux itself, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates in wines from the Left Bank of the Gironde River, while the Right Bank focuses on Merlot. Often, blends from outside the region are classified as being inspired by one or the other.

In the Glass

Cabernet-based, Left-Bank-styled wines are typically more tannic and structured, while Merlot-based wines modeled after the Right Bank are softer and suppler. Cabernet Franc can add herbal notes, while Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute color and structure. Wines from Bordeaux lean towards a highly structured and earthy style whereas New World areas (as in the ones named above) tend to produce bold and fruit-forward blends. Either way, Bordeaux red blends generally have aromas and flavors of black currant, cedar, plum, graphite, and violet, with more red fruit flavors when Merlot makes up a high proportion of the blend.

Perfect Pairings

Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb or smoked duck.

Sommelier Secret

While the region of Bordeaux is limited to a select few approved grape varieties in specified percentages, the New World is free to experiment. Bordeaux blends in California may include equal amounts of Cabernet Franc and Malbec, for example. Occassionally a winemaker might add a small percentage of a non-Bordeaux variety, such as Syrah or Petite Sirah for a desired result.
