Typically made of 90% Merlot, 6% Malbec and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon, Ferrari-Carano Merlot is made from cool climate valley floor vineyards which produce a supple, fruit-forward wine. Hand-harvested grapes are destemmed and then fermented, blended and barrel aged for 18 months in mostly French oak. Look for a complex nose of ripe cherry, blackberry jam, cinnamon and caramel, with flavors of wild berries and chocolate-covered strawberries with a velvety finish.

Wine SpectatorA bright red, with snappy flavors of red plum, currant and cherry that mix easily. Finishes with hints of dark chocolate. Crisp and tannic.

Wine EnthusiastSoft and varietal in nature, this wine offers dusty plum, leather and black currant and cherry, its structure simple and richly round. There's a hint of black licorice on the lengthy finish.
