2010 Trione Geyserville Red Blend

Producer: Trione
Country/Region: United States - California - Sonoma County

This artful, estate grown wine is a blend of the five classic Bordeaux varieties: 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 6% Malbec. Cabernet Sauvignon forms the base structure and Merlot contributes abundant fruit flavors and supple texture. The other three varietals add depth and nuance. We harvested the grapes from select blocks on our three ranches in Alexander Valley, a Sonoma County appellation renowned for these varieties.

Aromas of black currant, clove, warm spices and sage are the wine's first impressions. On the palate the wine is deep and layered, a seamless integration of ripe fruit, French oak and fine-grained tannins. Delicious now, the solid structure and abundant fruit suggest this wine will age well for 5 – 7 years with proper cellaring.

Wine Making Notes:

This estate grown wine is an artful blend of the five classic Bordeaux varieties: 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 6% Malbec. Cabernet Sauvignon forms the base structure and Merlot contributes abundant fruit flavors and supple texture. The Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot add depth, color and spice.. We harvested the grapes from select blocks on three Trione ranches in Alexander Valley, a Sonoma County appellation renowned for these red varieties.

We fermented each variety separately in small, open top vessels. We used a unique irrigation device that circulated free-run juice over the cap during the peak of fermentation, gently allowing optimum flavor extraction. The wine aged in French oak barrels (45% new) for eighteen months from coopers Taransaud, Vicard and TW Boswell.
