Trinchero Napa Valley – BRV Cabernet sauvignon

Appellation: Trinchero Napa Valley
Grape Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon

A fitting tribute to the second generation of the Trinchero family-Bob,Roger and Vera.

The 2012 growing season in Napa Valley began with an early bud-break, followed by mild spring weather, which gave us a heavy berry set. Our vines consistently saw warm, beautiful days throughout the growing season, coupled with Napa’s signature cool nights and foggy mornings, ensuring slow and even ripening. A warm fall with very little rain made for a smooth harvest. The resulting wines have beautiful balance and depth. Aging in 100% French oak (75% new) for 18 months.

The pinnacle of the portfolio, this sustainably sourced Cabernet Sauvignon is elevated in every way. On the nose, it has licorice, plum and hints of cigar box, followed by abundant flavors of blueberry, blackberry and violet. This wine reflects the intensity of its mountain origins and will age beautifully, with firm tannins and powerful structure.
