Ferrari Carano Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 (Cabernet Sauvignon)

TASTING NOTES: Vibrant aromas of plum, cedar, cola, cocoa, sandalwood spice and leather awaken the senses, while full-bodied flavours of black cherry, liquorice and cedar generously fill the palate. Round tannins and notes of vanilla with toasty caramel add to the lingering, elegant mouthfeel.

APPELLATION: Alexander Valley

VINEYARD: Ferrari Carano

GRAPES: Cabernet Sauvignon,

AGEING: The wine completes a total of 18 months of barrel ageing, allowing for the perfect balance of fruit, tannin and oak.

PREPARATION: Upon entering the winery, the hand-harvested grapes are destemmed and cold-soaked for 3 days. Following the cold soak, yeast is added and pump-overs commence, one to two times daily, for the duration of primary fermentation. The wine is drained and pressed, then moved to barrels for malolactic fermentation, remaining in individual lots until blending and bottling.

PAIRING: Pairs well with roasted, broiled or barbecued game and red meats such as lamb and beef, as well as pork and veal. Medium and strong-flavoured cheeses, such as blue cheese or sharp cheddar, also pair nicely with this wine.

ALCOHOL: 14.5

This Full?Bodied Cabernet Sauvignon, Blended With A Little Syrah For Structure, Comes From Mountain-Grown Fruit In Alexander Valley. The Wine Fermented In Stainless Steel, Then Moved To Mostly Neutral Barrels For Malolactic Fermentation And Total Of 18 Months Barrel Aging, Allowing For The Perfect Balance Of Fruit, Tannin And Oak. Vibrant Aromas Of Blackberry, Black Cherry, Cola, Tobacco, Cardamom And Cassis Awaken The Senses, While Full?Bodied Flavours Of Pomegranate, Vanilla And Clove Generously Fill The Palate. Lingering Notes Of Toasty Leather Round Out The Finish.
