"This wine is comprised of 95% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. The cool-climate, valley-floor vineyards produce supple, fruit-forward wine, while the mountain top vineyard fruit lends intensity and structure. Upon entering the winery, the hand-harvested grapes are destemmed, cold-soaked for five days, and then fermented in tank before gentle pressing. The wine is moved to barrels and aged for 16 months, allowing for the perfect balance of fruit, tannin, and oak. Select lots of grapes were chosen from our vineyards in Sonoma County to create this beautifully-balanced and full-bodied 2008 Ferrari-Carano Merlot. This is a velvety wine with a complex nose of cherry cobbler, blackberry, caramel, and vanilla intricately woven with lingering flavors of baked berry pie, cinnamon and spice. This wine has a viscous and full mouthfeel, impressive length and velvety tannins." -Winery
