2012

Trésor

Sonoma County

90 pts. An additional year of bottle aging has been kind to Trésor, our version of a Cabernet Sauvignon-based Bordeaux-style blend. Like the 2013, this 2012 vintage bottling sees even juicier fruit aromas and flavors unfolding, and still concentrated, powerful and firm in style — perfectly proportioned and integrated.

Aromas & Flavors

A blend of the classic Bordeaux varietals – Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Franc -- from the best selection of our vineyards in Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys. Vibrant aromas and flavors of fresh blackberry jam, cassis, cedar, anise, blueberry, spiced rum, coffee and caramel combine with a rich mid-palate with round tannins. This wine’s upfront silkiness and roundness make for a delicious selection now and will drink well for 15-20 years.

Food Pairings

Our Trésor complements lamb, beef and duck dishes that are roasted or braised. Try Trésor with strong-flavored cheeses such as Gorgonzola and sharp Cheddar.

How It's Made

Upon entering the gravity-flow winery, the grapes are destemmed and hand sorted. Whole berries are transferred by conveyor to stainless steel and oak tanks for a four-day cold soak prior to fermentation. After fermentation, each tank is drained to 40% new barrels and 60% older barrels, keeping each lot separate. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and 21 months of cave aging before blending and bottling.

The Vintage

Overall, 2012 was a very good year with ideal weather conditions for the vines. Spring produced great set and average rainfall led to ideal yields. Consistently warm temperatures during the summer months without any heat spikes or major rain events allowed for longer “hang time” leading to fully ripe flavors.
