Food Pairings for Trinchero Cabernet Sauvignon Clouds Nest Vyd. Mt. Veeder Napa Valley
External Reviews for Trinchero Cabernet Sauvignon Clouds Nest Vyd. Mt. Veeder Napa Valley
Trinchero’s Cloud’s Nest Vineyard lies above the fog line, high above the Napa Valley floor in the Mayacamas Mountains. This high altitude vineyard is incredibly steep with gravelly soil, and must be patiently farmed by hand. Its cool, eastern exposure allows for extended hang time, which imbues the grapes with greater complexity and character. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was aged 17 months in French Oak. Robert Parker scored it 93 points saying "The similarly colored 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Cloud's Nest Vineyard is from Mt. Veeder, a complicated mountain site of many diverse terroirs, but with the best parcels having fabulous potential. More black raspberry, blueberry and floral notes along with hints of background oak and roasted coffee emerge from this 2008. Slightly more seamless than its two predecessors, this opulent wine displays layers and layers of fruit and a rich, powerful finish with no hard edges. There is plenty of tannin, but the luxurious fruit levels conceal most of the tannin. This wine should drink well for 15-20 years."
