Vintage 2016


Ferrari Carano Cabernet.
Ferrari-Carano Cabernet Sauvignon comes primarily from mountaingrown fruit in Alexander Valley. Ripe black cherry aromas delight along with fresh boysenberry, spicy elements of clove, cedar and tea. Up front flavors of juicy blackberry, vanilla and cola are complemented by lingering notes of dark chocolate. This wine has excellent viscosity and smooth, pleasant structure with refined, yet generous, layers of tannin.

Blend: 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Syrah and 2% Petit Verdot

Bottle Size: .750

In 1979, Don and Rhonda Carano purchased a single 60-acre parcel of land in Sonoma County's Alexander Valley. The parcel included a restored 1904 farmhouse, a barn and 30 acres of grapes. So began a twenty-five year mission to acquire premium vineyard properties throughout the county, because Don and Rhonda truly believed, and still do, that owning their own vineyards is the best way to ensure the highest quality grapes needed to supply their growing winery in Dry Creek Valley and their mountain winery in Alexander Valley.
Today, Ferrari-Carano owns 19 estate vineyards in four different appellations totaling 1,400 acres, in some of the finest wine growing regions in all of California. Mountain, bench land and valley floor vineyards spread over a fifty mile radius were chosen for their diversity of microclimates and soil; the acclaimed and diverse Alexander Valley, the desirable Russian River Valley with its cooler temperatures, picturesque Dry Creek Valley, and, at the southernmost end of the county, Napa/Carneros. Each vineyard is a microclimate unto itself, contributing its own unique diversity of grape flavors, textures and structures derived from the perfectly balanced combination of climate, soil and plant material.
