Editorial Reviews for Ferrari-Carano Cabernet Sauvignon

Immediately rather complex with wood spice tones augmented by a lovely gentle herbal element that helps to frame the core of black and red currant fruit. There’s a fine little earthy streak, as well with a soft root cellar note. This is opulent on entry, rich and seamless with masses of dark, currant fruit backed up by notes of black olive, toast and very gentle vegetal notes. A big wine but well-crafted, in the modern style no doubt; and perhaps a bit too soft, but full of rich, dark fruit that powers across the long finish. I would like to see a bit more brightness here but there is no denying the depth and complexity. Finishes with carob and dried fruit notes along with the toasty wood spice. 91pts

Experience the essence and excellence of Cali cabs through this wine. The unique soil, the ripe flavors, are all made evident by winemaking that is clearly expert.

With aromas of dark cherry, vanilla, mocha and earthy elements of mineral, this wine delights with delicious flavors of vibrant, red berry pie, caramel and fresh boysenberry on the finish. Lingering sweet oak notes add excellent depth and characterize this lovely Cabernet Sauvignon.


Vintage: 2007 11/13/2010

Rating: 88/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. Deep and rich in their well-focused curranty fruit, and if not entirely outgoing, the aromas provide an accurate preview of the wine's attractive, slightly refined and still developing flavors. Supple at entry and a bit round at the edges and thus inviting early enjoyment, this bottling runs comfortably across the palate and finishes well.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

Offers richness, depth, complexity and a supple texture, with earthy currant, herb, cola and cherry-berry jam flavors. Ends with earthy tannins. Drink now through 2012.

Mixing loamy earth with fennel, mineral, dusty sage and dried currant, this takes time to unwrap from the tannins, but the flavors get more interesting on the finish. Best from 2011 through 2017.

Deep red. Redcurrant, tobacco and menthol on the nose. Sweet and easygoing, with supple, slightly jammy flavors of spicy redcurrant and tobacco, given shape by firm acids. Finishes with dusty tannins that grew drier with aeration.

Winemaker's Notes:

Delicious, ripe blackberries, blueberry pie, cassis and cedar aromas delight with a smooth and harmonious mouthfeel that boasts flavors of Bing cherry, boysenberry syrup, graham cracker and milk chocolate. Velvety tannins generously coat the palate while the finish is supple and long with vanilla and caramel notes from French oak aging.
