Ferrari Carano Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
This wine is composed of primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, blended with small amounts of Syrah and Petit Verdot. The hand harvested grapes enter the gravity flow winery and are hand sorted, then whole berries are gravity fed into tanks for fermenting before pressing. Individual lots are moved to bar- rels for malolactic fermentation, then blended and barrel aged for 18 months and aged an additional nine months in bottle, allowing for the perfect balance of fruit, tannin and oak. Our Ferrari-Carano Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with roasted, broiled or barbecued heavy game and red meats such as lamb, beef, pork and veal. Medium and strong-flavored cheeses, such as blue cheese or sharp cheddar, also pair nicely with Cabernet Sauvignon.

On the nose, blackberries and a combination of wet leaves and minerals. On the palate, I thought this was well balanced, but perhaps just a tad too smooth: good dark fruitiness but not jammy, discernible but not overbearing oak, slightly dusty tannins, enough acidity to just accent the fruit. Medium to full bodied, nice long aromatic, peppered meat finish.
Great all around. I was expecting a bigger body, but it had great balance.

Winemaker's Notes - With aromas of blackberry jam, baking spices, pure maple syrup and black tea, this wine delights with rich delicious flavors of caramel, espresso and dark chocolate. A juicy and full mid-palate, rich, mouth-coating tannins and excellent depth characterize this lovely Cabernet Sauvignon.
