Truchard / Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 / 750mL
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon
Geography: California, United States
Elegant aromas of raspberry, plum, and cassis; with a touch of cedar and vanilla. The mouth is layered with rich flavors of ripe cherries, red currants, and berry jam. Ripe tannins focus the palate and provide a lengthy finish of spice and red fruit.
The vines at Truchard Vineyards benefit not only from the cooling fog and moderate temperatures of Carneros, but are also influenced by the estate's unique topography, consisting of rolling hills, steep ravines, and numerous valleys. In addition, they are positioned across a wide variety of soil types including clay, shale, sandstone, lava rock, and volcanic ash. These factors allow the Truchards to grow diverse grape varieties, each planted with its optimal growing conditions in mind and minimal intervention.
