Ferrari Carano Tresor 2006
Upon entering the winery, the grapes were destemmed, hand-sorted and then whole berry fermented in tank before pressing. Individual lots were 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.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Editorial Reviews for Ferrari Carano Tresor
Meaty and earthy on the nose with sweet molasses aromas and a real herbal edge. There’s even a little Bovril here adding complexity to the core of dark fruit. This is velvety, smooth, rich and polished with nary a seam showing. A bit weighty and rich, the fruit is low in the mouth with more meaty, herbal and chocolate nuances providing some relief from the pressure of the fruit. People are going to love this, though for me it is a bit thick and shows a lot of oak on the back end and through the long, spicy finish. Not my style but very well done. 92pts
External Reviews for Ferrari Carano Tresor
WA 92 Pts - Winemakers Notes - 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 Tr sor 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. Rated 90+
