RATINGS

92Wine Spectator

Lots of up-front, ripe black cherry, plum and wild berry flavors, leading to a firm yet supple texture and finishing with depth and richness. Best from 2001 through 2009.

PRODUCER

Ferrari-Carano

Ferrari-Carano is based in Healdsburg, and owns 1,400 acres of vineyards in five northern California appellations. Ferrari-Carano was founded in 1979 when Don and Rhonda Carano bough 60 acres in Alexander Valley. The estate makes a very large portfolio of red, white and dessert wines.

REGION

United States, California, Sonoma County

Sonoma County is not an AVA, but it is a commonly used informal designation for wines made outside of more specific AVAs within Sonoma, which is a large wine producing region just west of Napa Valley. Though Sonoma is often overshadowed by its glamorous neighbor Napa Valley, it has a long history of wine production. The area specialized in jug wine until the mid-20th century, when Sonoma producers took a cue from Napa and started improving quality. Unlike Napa, where Cabernet Sauvignon is king, Sonoma specialized in Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Zinfandel, though excellent Cabs are produced too. There are at present 16 AVAs within Sonoma County, and, like much of the West Coast of the United States, new AVAs are created in Sonoma County with regularity. Some Sonoma appellations, such as the Russian River Valley, are renowned for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
