2015 Trinchero Red Wine

2015 Trinchero Forte, a Bordeaux style blend from Trinchero Napa Valley just north of St Helena on Hwy 29. This blend of Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot was perfect for watching the Sunday sunset by our fire pit.

Did you know that the Trinchero family is the largest family winery with over 200 acres in Napa Valley. It all started in 1947 with the purchase of Sutter Home and the Trinchero brothers introduction of the White Zinfandel wine and as we say, the rest is history!

The wine has only been released to club members and I expect it to be available to the public very soon. The Malbec is from their Mt Veeder’s Cloud Nest Vineyard and Atlas Mountain Haystack Vineyard, you can definitely taste the mountain dark berries! The Petit Verdot is sourced from the Central Park West Vineyard in St Helena and the Merlot comes from Vera’s Vineyard in South Napa Valley.

This mouthwatering wine was smooth from start to finish with a nice long finish! What a way to start the weekend!

About myredwineguys

My red wine guys, Jim and Rich, have been drinking and comparing red wines together for the last 10 years. We drink reds exclusively (except for champagne during New Year’s Eve celebration's or special occasions). In our search to find the best red wine for the buck, we are constantly buying and drinking a variety of reds. Frequently, we see many of our favorite reds increase in price (making them impractical to buy and consume with the dismal economy). This motivates us to try and compare lesser known reds from a variety of wineries. We are constantly telling our friends where to buy and save on these great reds. One weekend over a bottle of red wine (of course), we decided to share our recommendations with the world via a blog (with the support of our wives who really think this is another way for us to drink more red wine). We are going to be making road trips up the coast and sharing our opinions on some great California Reds. Jim is a retired Navy Senior Chief now working as a Navy Technical Rep. His world travels have given him the opportunity to taste wines on different continents. He finds himself often comparing them to his favorite region – Napa Valley’s Oakville/Rutherford districts that produce some of the world’s best Cabernet Sauvignon's. Richard is a musician who grew up in Santa Maria with a family rich with red wine tradition. According to the family legends, his grandfather used to make wine out of grapefruit when grapes were not available. He grew up drinking and making wine with his father and other Italian families in the central coast, long before there were grape vines in the area. In fact, the reason his family located to California was to make wine! Thank you for visiting our site! We hope you enjoy a glass of exceptional red wine soon!
