Ferrari-Carano, Bordeaux blend, 2003

This Californian "Bordeaux" is an old favorite of mine. It's only available at the Alexander Valley winery Ferrari-Carano, where I first found it after tasting a vertical of the Tresor line. 2005 and 2004 were great, but the 2003 was spectacular. This was the third bottle I had, always with friends. This wine has the right amount of everything: it smells great, tastes accordingly and is very smooth with a light oaky finish. For $60 it's not terribly expensive, but is not an everyday type of wine either, sadly. Still, it's a good value.
