Treana White 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

After harvest, vineyard lots were fermented individually in open-top stainless steel tanks for 14 days. Carefully managed pump-overs enhanced the extraction of color and tannin. The varietals were aged separately in 100% French oak barrels, 50% of which were new. The best lots were combined to create the blend in early 2010. The wine was racked only twice during its cellar life, with the final racking occurring just prior to bottling.

Sandy soil tone with fine herbal elements. A bit of burnt rubber and some dried citrus peel notes. This does smell a bit alcoholic though it has a nice black cherry jam note on the nose. Lots of fruit up front with red cherry, red currant and dried strawberry fruit. Some nice mineral notes offer contrast and cut on the palate of this rather large scaled wine. This leans towards being a bit sweet and jammy though it has enough tannin and minerality to cut through the fruit particularly on the finish, which shows some dusty mineral notes, slightly drying tannins and a touch of heat 91pts

Sampled this wine at a wine tasting at the Ridge Tahoe in Stateline, NV. This one divided the wine tasters, some of them thinking it odd or too sweet and the others liking it a lot. I fell in with the latter. I am far from a wine connoisseur but I've never had a wine quite like this. I found it intriguing. The wine was very smooth yet still complex both in taste and bouquet. In fact, I wasn't sure how to pair this wine, but I had the good fortune of sitting next to some independent wine makers and they suggested pork dishes. I'll have to try that.

Had this with the Christmas ham. Due to the glaze and the saltiness it seemed to take on a little bite but by it self before and after dinner it was fruity and delicious. I am going to they it again with some non fatty fish later. As a straight wine or possibly a desert wine this bottle has great potential.

Treana White is a blend of 55% Viognier and 45% Marsanne. These two varieties, indigenous to the Rhone Valley in France, flourish in California's Central California white Rhone blends with the release of the 1996 Treana White. The majority of the fruit in this blend is from Santa Lucia Highlands, which benefits from the cooling breezes coming off of Monterey Bay. The 2008 Treana White's color is reminiscent of the golden hillsides of the California Central Coast at harvest time. A beautiful bouquet of peaches and lime is bolstrered by aromatic notes of honeysuckle. Full in body and rich in flavor, the wine invigorates the palate with dried apricot, pineapple, subtle citrus flaovrs and notes of honey, which continue through a long finish.

This wine displays the elegant varietal characteristics of Viognier and Marsanne. Vibrant floral aromas of citrus blossom and jasmine are followed by ripe stone fruit flavors, hints of pear, pineapple and honey overtones.Solid minerality lends complexity and structure. The mouth-feel is full, while bright acidity cleanses the palate and offers ease and versatility for food pairing.A wine of excellent balance and complexity, the Treana will age beautifully over the next decade.

Very fragrant, with rose petal, honeysuckle and mustard notes on a light frame, with spicy overtones to the dried apricot and citrus peel flavors. Drink now.

From the northernmost vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands, this Rhocirc;ne white is a fantastically interesting wine. Complex and compelling, with brilliant fruit flavors spanning the range from apricots and limes to peaches and guava. All this juicy flavor is boosted by bright and beautiful acidity. A blend of 61% Viognier and 39% Marsanne.

Dark, opaque red with a clear rim. Cherry, blueberry pie, chocolate, and minerals dominate the nose. While the palate entry is soft, when this hits the midpalate it's a solid display of red and blue fruits, with a finish that is long and persistent. ... Cory Gowan.

The 2008 Treana Red, our flagship wine, has a deeply extracted, ruby hue and displays up-front aromas of ripe, dark fruit and exotic spice. Depth and power come from the Cabernet, while a Syrah component lends inviting fleshiness. The wine's full mouthfee

1996 was the first release of Treana. The Hope Family created this winery to produce this special blend of Rhone and California varietals. Since its inception it has been a major success, displaying the richness and character of these grapes and how well the flavors meld together. This latest release is all from their vineyards in Paso Robles and blends 70% Cabernet Sauvignon with 30% Syrah. The wine was aged if French oak barrels half of which were new oak. The bold intensity is is expected but what unexpected is the supple, mouth-filling ripeness of this 2008. Rich flavors of cherry, plums, black currant, ripe figs and dark chocolate spread out on your palate and thrill your taste buds. It's an incredibly friendly wine at what is now a very friendly price. Don't miss it!

Tasting Notes:

The 2008 Treana Red's intense color immediately set the table for a wine of great depth, structure and balance. Concentrated aromas of bright red cherry, pomegranate and plumb are followed by intense flavors of dried figs, cocoa, spice and bay leaf. The wine culminates with a long and balanced finish. The 2008 Treana Red will continue to develop wonderfully for the next ten years.
