Ferrari-Carano vineyard practices are customized to match the particular characteristics of each vineyard to help the vines produce the best fruit possible, and to in turn, achieve the best wine possible. Directed by Don Carano and orchestrated under the supervision of Steve Domenichelli, Director of Vineyard Operations, these practices are extremely labor intensive. Steve and his team implement irrigation and nutrient regimes, trellis system and canopy management, rootstock and clone combinations, and pruning and cane selection for each vineyard site and each block within a vineyard. Because of Sonoma County's diverse geological makeup, even within one vineyard parcel there may be several different types of soil with different degrees of nutrients for vines and water-holding capacity. In addition, Steve and his team practice sustainable farming techniques, such as recycling organic matter for use as mulch in the vineyards, planting cover crops and other plant species to avoid soil erosion, add desirable nutrients back to the soil and to attract desirable insects, and integrating animals to naturally enhance biodiversity and nutrient recycling.

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
