Truchard Cabernet Sauvignon Carneros Napa Valley
Description: The key word on the label is ‘Carneros,’ Napa Valley, home to 400 relatively cool acres air-conditioned by the San Pablo Bay. This cabernet is planted to steep south, southwestern facing hillsides, in essence, the warmest of the cool sites. The vineyards are mix of ages from 16 to 38-years old and the mix contains bits of cabernet franc (11), petit verdot (1), and malbec (1). Look for a spicy, almost peppery mix of cool red and black fruit flavours. The palate is similar with spicy, cool cedar, vanilla, anise, balsamic notes and a fresh finish. Tannins are a bit on the sticky, powdery style, though a wine like this always well suited to proteins to fill out any gaps. A cool style Napa cabernet more reminiscent of the Okanagan than Napa Valley. Best now with grilled meats or let this age for six to eight years.
