Trhero Meritage, Napa Valley, 2006

88% Cabernet Sauvignon. 2% Petit Verdot. 2% Cabernet Franc. 8% Merlot. In 1948, Italian immigrant Mario Trinchero brought his family to California's Napa Valley. Today, after over a half-century as Napa vintners, his children honor their father with Trinchero - Mario's Reserve wines. The blend for this bottling was sourced from our elite estate and long-term contracted Napa Valley vineyards. It is deep ruby purple in color with aromas of blackberry, blueberry and cassis accented with mocha, sweet tobacco and vanilla notes. This wine is lush and full-bodied with layers of juicy, bright high-tone fruit. Only 74 barrels were produced. Alc. 14.2% by vol.
