Ferrari-Carano Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
Our Home Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is truly a wine with a story. A first-time-ever, vineyard-designate bottling, this wine comes from the first vineyard Don and Rhonda purchased over 30 years ago, when they first discovered Sonoma County wine country. Located in Alexander Valley and affectionately called the Home Ranch, this two-tiered, steep, west-facing vineyard sits atop the elevated valley floor and enjoys full sunshine. The hand-harvested grapes enter the gravity-flow winery and are hand sorted, then whole berries are gravity fed into French oak fermentors, cold soaked, and then fermented for 28 days on skins. After gently, small batch pressing, wine is gravity fed to French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation, then blended and barrel aged for 20 months and aged an additional nine months in bottle, allowing for the perfect balance of fruit, tannin and oak.
