Trinchero Napa Valley Cabernet Franc 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Blended With 15% Merlot To Create A Whine With Both Red And Black Fruit Characteristics And A Lingering Finish “Cabernet Franc is most often used in blends, but it’s intriguing to me to bottle some Cabernet Franc on its own. This wine has an incredible garnet color, cola and floral aromatics, with juicy red fruit, melted licorice, bacon fat and spice flavors. I blended in some Merlot to create a wine with both red and black fruit characteristics and a lingering finish. My wife spent a harvest at Cheval Blanc and this wine always transports me back there.” —Mario Monticelli

Trinchero Napa Valley:
'The Trincher Napa Valley winery is a work of art unto itself- -the perfect place to craft our new luxury wines. As an architect, this Project has been especially meaningful to me. No detail was overlooked and we worked tirelessly to not only malce this a great functioning winery, but to also make it a place for friends and family to gather'
