Ferrari-Carano Cabernet Sauvignon
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Alexander Valley|
Vibrant aromas of black cherry, plum, cardamom, cedar, sage and sandalwood spice awaken the senses, while full-bodied flavors of licorice, leather, cocoa, vanilla and toasty caramel generously fill the palate. Lingering notes of toasty leather round out the finish.
This Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with roasted, broiled or barbecued game and red meats such as lamb and beef, as well as pork and veal. Medium and strong-flavored cheeses, such as blue cheese or sharp cheddar, also pair nicely with this wine.
Tightly wound tannin and generous oak support up-front blackberry and cocoa powder in this full-bodied, powerful wine. Aged in a mix of French and Eastern European oak, much of it older, it is soft, supple and accessible.
