The Wine Advocate 88 pts - Robert Parker
From relatively high elevation mountain vineyards, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses floral, blueberry and black currant aromas intermixed with hints of graphite and spice box. Medium-bodied with sweet tannin and a surprisingly civilized, polite style for a high elevation Cabernet, it is a mid-weight, Bordeaux-like red that should drink nicely for 7-8 years.

Description:
This wine is composed of primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, blended with small amounts of Syrah and Petit Verdot. The hand harvested grapes enter the gravity flow winery and are hand sorted, then whole berries are gravity fed into tanks for fermenting before pressing. Individual lots are moved to bar- rels for malolactic fermentation, then blended and barrel aged for 18 months and aged an additional nine months in bottle, allowing for the perfect balance of fruit, tannin and oak. Our Ferrari-Carano 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 Cabernet Sauvignon.
