Tasting Notes: Vibrant aromas and flavors of red and black berries, black tea, cedar, earth, vanilla, blackberry and cassis, combine with a full mid-palate with considerable, round tannins. Lingering sweet oak notes of creme brûlée and dark chocolate add great depth. This wine's upfront silkiness and roundness make for a delicious selection now and will drink well for 15-20 years.
Galaxy Notes: 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Malbec, 8% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot, 4% Merlot Aged 18 months in 60% new French oak. Ferrari-Carano presents its finest blend of the five classic Bordeaux varietals from the best selections of our vineyards in Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys. Aptly named "Tresor" for "treasure," the grapes are hand harvested from dry-farmed, low-yielding vines primarily on our mountain vineyards. Upon entering the gravity-flow winery, the grapes are destemmed, hand sorted, cold soaked for two days 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 18 months in our wine caves, allowing for the perfect balance of fruit intensity, tannin suppleness and oak sweetness.
