Ferrari-Carano Winery Tresor Sonoma County 2008
Our finest red wine, a master blend of all five classic Bordeaux red varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. In our mountain vineyards the shallow rocky soils and low yields produce grapes of great depth and intensity of flavor. Our unique fermentation and barrel aging process melds the rich fruit and soft tannins into a real treasure Trsor.
Editorial Reviews for Ferrari-Carano Winery Tresor Sonoma County
Certainly spicy from oak on the nose, this is also surprisingly red-fruited with hints of blueberry and black cherry floating over that red fruited base. This shows lovely balance on entry, made in a ripe but still transparent style, there's plenty of oak here, creating a dark, slightly spicy and toasty base for the crisp, mineral-flecked red and black currant and black plum flavors which have a spicy edge of their own. The acidity is well integrated but by no means soft, keeping this lively right through the clean, taut and slightly drying medium length finish. Fairly elegant and well balanced, this can be enjoyed today but should age fairly well. 92pts
