PreVail Alexander Valley West Face 2005

Details

At merely 2.75 tons per acre, the grapes for West Face are grown on the steep slopes of Ferrari-Carano's LookOut Mountain which sits at the junction of Alexander Valley, Knights Valley and Chalk Hill appellations. This spectacular mountain vineyard boasts 360 degree views, soaring in elevation from 500 to 1,400 feet, with soils deep, red and rich with nutrients. Dark, concentrated aromas of anise, mocha and currant surround flavors of juicy blackberry, sweet dark cherry, milk chocolate, cinnamon, and cassis liqueur. Opulent roasted, caramel oak flavors come through with loads of dense, powerful tannins providing textural proof of this wine's ageability.
