Ferrari-Carano Trésor 2013
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Alexander Valley|
The 2013 Tresor Proprietary Red is a Bordeaux-inspired blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. This wine does not have the power and sheer richness of the 2013 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, but is more approachable and seems to have more nuances and complexity at an earlier age. In addition to a dense purple color, beautiful sweet crème de cassis, blackberry and nicely integrated wood acidity and tannin, it has a touch of chocolate in the finish adding to the complexity. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
Shows a dusty, savory edge and gripping herbal tannins amid a firm core of dark berry, cedar and crushed rock. Solid throughout. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2028. 8,000 cases made.
