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!
