Trinchero Napa Valley Central Park West Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

“Even though this wine bears a New York City name, it screams Napa Valley. In 2008, we hand-picked this vineyard multiple times over a three week period. With these valley floor origins and warm St. Helena climate, this is an opulent, eminently drinkable Cabernet with great dark color. Luscious red currant and black fruit aromas intermix with vanilla and blackberry cobbler like flavors leading into a satisfying, smooth finish with subtle hints of white pepper.” —Mario Monticelli

Trinchero's Central Park West Vineyard, named in a nostalgic nod to the New York City origins of the Trinchero family, is located at the southern end of the St. Helena appellation. This vineyard is a level site with deep, loamy soils, good sun exposure and excellent air circulation—the ideal situation for producing classic Napa Valley Cabernet. And this 100% Cab was aged 15 months in 75% new French oak. Robert Parker scored it 90 points saying "The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Central Park West (the name is apparently a tribute to the Trinchero family's home town, New York City) comes from a 22-acre vineyard planted in the deep, loamy soils of the valley floor at the southern edge of the St. Helena appellation. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by earthy, Provencal garrigue-like notes intermixed with high quality unsmoked cigar tobacco. This is the softest, easiest to drink, most precocious and evolved of the 2008 single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons. Medium to full-bodied and seductive, it is ideal for drinking over the next 10-15 years."



Tasting Notes:

Luscious Blueberry And Cassis Flavors, Accented With Cocoa And Brioche--Smooth, Elegant Finish.
