2018 Truchard Cabernet Sauvignon Carneros
Winemaker Notes: Cabernet Sauvignon is planted in several different sites - on steep, southwestern facing hillsides. The vines range from 19 - 41 years old, and produce wines that are deep in color, dominated by lush flavors of plum, berry, and spice. Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec are blended in to provide additional softness, structure, and complexity.
Wine Enthusiast - "This wine remains one of the finest values in the Napa Valley and a cool-climate example of the variety, to boot. With great opening aromas of blackberry, clove and dried herb, the lifted, balanced flavors follow suit, showing plenty of freshness and length around a well-integrated and elegant core."
Connoisseurs' Guide - "11% Cabernet Franc; 2% other. There are not many wineries in Northern California with such a long and distinguished history of making quality wines at affordable prices as Truchard. And, here is yet another successful effort. This one sports well-focused, curranty aromas and flavors with a touch of richness for good measure and is balanced and supple yet solid in texture. It will support a bit of cellaring but does not demand it."
