The fruit for this 2006 Ferrari-Carano Cabernet Sauvignon comes primarily from mountain-grown fruit in Alexander Valley. Fog drifts over the tops of the coastal mountains and burns off quickly in the morning sunshine, resulting in a warm climate with almost full sun throughout the day. Their mountain vines are dry farmed in shallow, rocky, low-vigor soil that add impressive depth and concentration of flavor intensity to the wine. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Syrah and 7% Petit Verdot, fermented slowly and then aged 19 months in French, Hungarian and American oak. The wine shows aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, black currant and espresso with rich flavors of Bing cherry, chocolate, cassis and anise.
