Food Pairings for Ferrari-Carano Prevail West Face
excellent super bad cab
These 13-year-old mountain vines with ideal western sun exposure are dry farmed in verdant soil that adds impressive depth and flavor intensity to the wine. West Face is a blend of Clone 8 Cabernet Sauvignon along with Clone 470 and the Durrell selection clone. The grapes for West Face are hand-harvested, and upon entering the winery, hand-sorted and then gravity fed directly into oak tanks for seven days of cold soaking, then fermented and macerated for 28—35 days on the skins. After primary fermentation, the wine is gravity fed to barrel and aged in the wine caves for 22 months, with an additional 14 months aging in bottle prior to release.
Notes: 60% new French and 40% older French oak barrels
