Trinchero Reserve Cabernet 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Vineyard InformationThe 22-acre Main Street Vineyard is located at the southern end of the St. Helena AVA, considered by many to be the perfect ripening zone for Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2004 vintage was a roller coaster. The season began with heat spikes in March followed by one of the wettest Aprils on record. A warm summer and more heat in September raised sugars quickly, creating a frenetic harvest. For Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, the warm weather brought both intensity and flavor.WinemakingAfter a cold pre-soak, the grapes were fermented using the rack-and-return method (delestage) favored by leading Bordeaux chateaux. In addition to increasing color and flavor, this process allows for the removal of seeds, which reduces astringency and produces more supple tannins. To further soften tannins and create a more generous texture, the wine was exposed to air during fermentation and barrel aging. The wine spent 25 months in a combination of new (80%) and two year old (20%) French barrels. To preserve the texture and character of the fruit, this Cabernet Sauvignon received only a light filtration.Winemaker NotesBrilliant red purple in hue, the nose is dusty with cocoa. Dark chocolate, cherry and espresso flavors wrap the tongue in a lush velvet blanket while the mouth feel is full, plush and firm leading to a smooth finish.Chef NotesThe dark chocolate and cherry flavors coupled with moderate acidity and subtle tannins of our Main Street Cabernet Sauvignon create a perfect food and wine marriage. Our Culinary Center Chefs often showcase our flagship wine with grilled steak topped in a wild mushroom sauce.Wine Information Composition:100% Cabernet Sauvignon Alcohol: 13.5% T.A.: 62g/100ml pH: 3.6 Oak: 100% French Cases: 3,435 6-pack cases Release Date: April 2007
