"The Ferrari-Carano Prevail Back Forty Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 is an elegant and robust red wine. The grapes for Back Forty are grown on low-yielding vines on a 40 acre, 1,100-foot elevation vineyard at the back side of Ferrari-Carano’s RockRise Mountain in Alexander Valley. A delicious array of intense aromas and flavors includes ripe plum, spice, cassis, deep blackberry, mocha, and toasty oak. This full-bodied, juicy, and viscous red wine has excellent length and a lingering finish of smooth, mouth-coating tannins."
