Trinitas Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley Meritage 2008
Editorial Reviews for Trinitas Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley Meritage
Tight on the nose and showing a leading edge of fine French oak without much to cover it at this stage, though some ivy and candied black plum notes do emerge with air. On the palate, this is classic California Cabernet: rich, round, with bright acid and some assertive wood tannins at this young age but a core of black cherry, currant and blueberry fruit. If this stays well balanced and loses some baby fat it could be great. Even now it delivers plenty of enjoyment with a particularly long, well-fruited and ever so tactile finish. A bigish wine but one that really has its stuff together. 93pts
Dark fruits and a bit of oak with slight acid on the finish.
Spicy, hot and earthy aromas open for this super fruity wine. It's full of ripe cherry, blackberry and feels sugary sweet, probably because it's a big wine.
funky on the nose, mushroomy, wet earth and yet on the plate releases immediate berry fruits, blackberries, plums, wonderful backbone, nice complexity of flavors and fruit lingers on the finish
