Ferrari-Carano Tresor Sonoma County Red Blend 2012

External Review:

Ferrari-Carano’s finest blend. Five classic Bordeaux varietals are sourced from the best selections of their vineyards in Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys. Named “Trésor” for “treasure,” the grapes are hand harvested from dry-farmed, low-yielding vines primarily on our mountain vineyards. The blend is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec, 5% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc aged in 55% new French oak for 18 months. Wine Enthusiast scored it 91 and Robert Parker scored it 93+ and said "Displaying a similar opaque ruby/purple color, the 2010 Tresor has a broader, richer, more skyscraper-like mouthfeel. It offers pure blackberry and black currant fruit intermixed with notions of incense, vanillin and spice. Full-bodied, rich and impressively endowed, it is a brilliant example of just how well Bordeaux varietals can do in selected Sonoma micro-climates. The fruit is so sweet that it can be appreciated now for its youth and exuberance, but ideally, it will benefit from another 2-3 years in the bottle. It should easily last for two decades."
