The Ferrari-Carano Cabernet Sauvignon comes from mountain-grown fruit in Alexander Valley. Cedar and spice aromas delight with a soft mouth feel that boasts flavors of mocha, black tea, wild berry.

Few years on it and still quite nice. Some secondary aromas are showing.

Such a beautiful winery. Have fond memories of my first trip to Sonoma.
A spicy, intoxicating nose. The palate is full of cherry, currant, smoked cedar and cigar box. Firm tannins. Well-rounded and balanced. You won't go wrong here.

Well constructed, not jammy, with a firm hand of oak that doesn't feel disjointed.

THE new voyage of this elegant cab maintains F-C's style of ripe medium fruit, lovely cedar and cassis aromas and fine ripe tannins. Great example of a medium weight Alexander Valley cab
