Ferrari-Carano presents its finest blend of the five classic Bordeaux varietals a " Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc a " from the best selections of our vineyards in Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys. Aptly named a sTrACsora t for a streasure,a t the grapes are hand harvested from dry-farmed, low-yielding vines primarily on our mountain vineyards. Delicious aromas of blueberry, blackberry and cassis combine with a vibrant mid-palate of roasted mocha and vanilla. With a full-bodied and impressive tannin profile, this winea s upfront silkiness and roundness make for a delicious selection now and will drink well for 15a "20 years.
Upon entering the winery, the grapes are destemmed, hand sorted and then whole-berry fermented in tank before pressing. Individual lots are moved to barrels for malolactic fermentation, then blended and barrel aged in new and older French oak for 20 months, allowing for the perfect balance of fruit intensity, tannin suppleness and oak sweetness.
84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec, 4% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc
