Winemaker's Notes:

Vineyard InformationFor the 2005 vintage, high quality grapes from Lake County, Monterey County and Santa Barbara County all played an important role in our Trinchero Family Cabernet Sauvignon. The warmer weather of Lake and Santa Barbara Counties gives the wine its fruit-forward characteristics, while the cooler vineyards of Monterey balance the alcohol and acidity levels. We were especially fortunate in 2005 as this record vintage was not only high in yields, but also in quality, allowing our vineyard manager to pick and choose the best sources for fruit and complexity. WinemakingOur 2005 Cabernet was fermented using the rack-and-return method (Delestage) favored by many top Bordeaux chateaux. This helps to develop deeper color and greater flavor extraction. After a 14-day maceration, the wine was transferred to a combination of American, French, and Hungarian oak barrels. Winemaker NotesOnce again our Lake County and Central Coast vineyards yielded a powerful Cab that is deep, dense and ripe with black cherry, plum and a hint of earthiness. It delivers the warm fruit and broad mouth feel typical of our Family Cabernet Sauvignon. Chef NotesThe medium body combined with juicy ripe fruit and flavor-enhancing acidity make our Trinchero Family Cabernet Sauvignon a staple for many of our winery dishes. This versatile wine is a complement to grilled steaks, salmon or even a meaty pizza (with extra cheese of course). Wine Information Composition: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot Barrel Aging: 12 months in American, French, and Hungarian oak Alcohol:13.3% pH:3.63 Cases:96,000 Appellation: 56% Lake County, 37% Monterey County, 7% Santa Barbara County Release Date: February 2007
