External Reviews for Trinitas Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Trinitas' Cab vineyards are in the heart of Napa Valley in the Oakville AVA. It's hard to say that one particular area of Napa truly produces the best Cabernet, but it's also hard to find someplace that has more claim to that title than Oakville. In this wine from the historic 2007 vintage, they added other varietals including a touch of Petite Sirah. The blend is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Oakville), 8% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petite Sirah and 1% Malbec. The wine was fermented in small open top tanks, punched down four times per day and then barrel aged 18 months in 80% new French oak. It's deep and concentrated but supple and rich as the Oakville pedigree and the '07 vintage each make their mark. Flavors of chocolate, espresso, and plum, blackberries, cherries and cocoa fill your moth and linger long on the finish. Extremely limted!
