“The other cuvée under the PreVail moniker is Ferrari-Carano’s 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon PreVail Back Forty, which is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the unique 40-acre block at the back of their mountain estate. This shows a Provençal-garrigue and lavender character. It has a dense ruby/purple color and if I did not know, I would have been convinced that there were some Rhône Ranger varietals blended in, but the wine is pure Cabernet. It is spicy, earthy, rich, peppery and impressive. I am not sure I like it as much as the 2013 West Face, but this is high-quality material. Drink it over the next 15 years.”
