(2013 Vintage) Our Ferrari-Carano Cabernet Sauvignon comes from mountain-grown fruit in Alexander Valley. Vibrant aromatics of cassis, smoky cedar, mint, caramel and leather awaken the senses, while full-bodied flavors of juicy boysenberry jam and plums generously fill the palate. Lingering notes of toasty licorice round out the finish.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(2006 Vintage) Its ripe and youthful fruit aromas notwithstanding, this wine has more of a dry streak at its heart than it can overcome, and while it is likely to be entirely serviceable, it is also runs from glyceriny smooth and somewhat fleshy at entry to astringent and narrow by the time it finishes. It comes very close to commendation, but this isn't horseshoes.
