Trespass Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena Estate Grown 2003

Member Review by Eric Guido:

Dark red in the glass and as I pour into the decanter the room is filled with floral and fruity smells that tempt me enough to pour a glass first thing and take a few sips. What a wine right out of the bottle but the main show started about two hours later. Aromas of Black currant and raspberry jam with dusty potpourri and spiced cookie. The palate was lush and full bodied with Cherry and wild berries followed by sage and finished with cinnamon and dark chocolate. The most impressive part is that through all of this the wine is balanced with a bit of extra acidity that makes it a food friendly wine. Very happy with this bottle.

Trespass Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot are the result of a dedicated collaboration between husband and wife, Dana and Don Gallagher, a renowned winemaker and one small vineyard situated at the base of Spring Mountain in the Saint Helena Appellation (AVA) - Napa Valley. Part of a select group of boutique California wineries, with only five acres of wine grapes that are divided between Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, our vineyard is a true labor of love, with virtually every aspect of vineyard management and wine making done by hand. This dedication has allowed us to handcraft wines that reflect the unique character and intensity of the terrior. The vineyard is located just off Madrona Avenue on the northwest side of St. Helena, adjacent to many other acclaimed Napa Valley vineyards. The wine making is a team effort for the Gallagher's and is overseen by Kirk Venge, a second generation Napa Valley winemaker. His knowledge and experience has helped to guide the development of the wines into the elegant and refined vintages for which Trespass has become known. Read less
