Truchard’s estate vineyard is located in the Carneros region of the Napa Valley. It covers a 400 acre expanse of hills and valleys containing a variety of soils: clay, shale, sandstone, limestone, volcanic ash, and rock. The combination of terrain, geology, and marine-moderated temperatures provides ideal conditions for wine-growing. This is mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon, planted in several sites on steep south-west facing hillsides. The vines, 18 to 40 years old, produce wines that are deep in colour, dominated by lush flavours of plum, berry, and spice.

All of the fruit was harvested by vineyard block, then gently destemmed and crushed. Fruit macerated for 14 to 30 days, depending on lot. The wine aged 20 months in French oak barrels, 45% new.

The wine is elegant, with Truchard’s characteristically refined aromas of raspberry, plum, cassis, cedar, and vanilla. The mouth is layered with rich flavours of ripe cherries, red currants, and berry jam. Ripe tannins focus the palate and provide a long finish of spice and red fruit.

“A charming, medium-bodied Cabernet from Napa’s southernmost section, and thus a region with greater exposure to the San Pablo Bay. Aromas of charred wood, incense and lavender. Purple-fruited, uniform and impressively finessed on the palate. An outstanding value for those looking to try a fresh, breezy style of Cabernet. Drinking Window 2022 – 2030”
92 points, Decanter, October 2020

“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.”
