The grapes for this wine come from Ferrari-Carano’s mountain ranche in Alexander Valley, the LookOut Ranch which sits at the junction of Alexander, Knights and Chalk Hill appellations. The vineyards soar in height from 500 to 1,400-feet of elevation. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, upon entering the winery, the hand-harvested grapes are destemmed and cold soaked for three days. Following the cold soak, yeast is added and pumpovers commence, one to two times daily, for the duration of primary fermentation. The wine is drained and pressed, then moved to barrels for malolactic fermentation, remaining in individual lots until blending and bottling. The wine completes a total of 19 months barrel aging in 56% new French oak. This wine is full-bodied with layers of wild blackberry, spiced plum, molasses, sage and a hint of white peppercorn. Silky smooth tannins and a touch of cinnamonlinger on the finish. 750 ml
