Ferrari-Carano Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

SKU 5493


Our 2014 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our RockRise Ranch in Alexander Valley. Fog drifts over the tops of the coastal mountains and burns off quickly in the morning sunshine, resulting in a warm climate with almost full sun throughout the day - ideal conditions for our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. This full-bodied wine entices with captivating aromas of dark chocolate, plum, green olives and leather, accented with undertones of cassis. Lush and full flavors of black cherry, plum, boysenberry, cola, and cedar are layered with a solid structure of rich tannins. Our Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with roasted, broiled or barbecued heavy game and red meats such as lamb, beef, pork and veal. Medium and strong-flavored cheeses, such as blue cheese or sharp cheddar, also pair nicely with this wine.

Wine AdvocateDeep garnet colored, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve has notes of crème de cassis, dried mulberries and plum preserves with hints of eucalyptus, dark chocolate and cedar chest. The medium-bodied palate offers great poise and expression, with plenty of menthol laced black fruit preserve flavors nicely framed by ripe tannins and great freshness, finishing long.

Wine EnthusiastThere's something overwhelmingly herbal and weedy about this wine, which shows a simple structure of tannin and lingering flavors of cherry cola.
