Wine Review: This ruby red colored blend from Sonoma is really good. It opens with a red currant and pomegranate like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty red plum, Maraschino cherry and cassis blend with notes of dark chocolate and oak in the background. The finish is rather dry and its moderate tannins build up and stick around for quite a while. I would pair this wine with big thick cut porterhouse steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Ferrari-Carano presents its finest blend of the five classic Bordeaux varietals – Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Cabernet Franc – from the best selections of our vineyards in Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys. Aptly named "Tresor" for "treasure," the grapes are hand harvested from low-yielding vines primarily on our mountain vineyards. Vibrant aromas and flavors of boysenberry, cassis, anise, black cherry, and caramel come together with lingering plum on a long finish. This wine's upfront silkiness and roundness make for a delicious selection now and will drink well for 15-20 years. Tresor complements lamb, beef and duck dishes that are roasted or braised. Try Tresor with strong-flavored cheeses such as Gorgonzola and sharp Cheddar.

Your comments on this wine:





Are all wines meant to be aged? No. In fact, perhaps 90% of today's wines are vinified for consumption within 2 years of the vintage.
