Trésor

Sonoma County

93 pts from Wine Spectator! Aptly named “Trésor” for “treasure,” this wine is our version of a Cabernet Sauvignon-based Bordeaux-style blend, and it has everything you’d expect — lush and ripe fruit aromas and flavors, concentrated, powerful and firm in style — perfectly proportioned and integrated. This wine checks all the boxes.

Aromas & Flavors

Our finest blend of the five classic Bordeaux varietals – Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Cabernet Franc – from the best selections of our vineyards in Alexander, Napa, Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys. Silky, elegant and vibrant with aromas of dried blueberry, dark plum, chocolate, toffee and a subtle hint of licorice leading to flavors of caramel, black cherry, pomegranate with a hint of molasses on the lingering finish. Upfront silkiness and roundness make for a delicious wine now and will drink well for 7-10 years.

Food Pairings

Trésor complements lamb and beef dishes that are roasted or braised, like braised lamb with fennel, or pair with beef stew, filet mignon with mushrooms in a whiskey pan sauce, a bacon maple cheeseburger, or grilled flank or sirloin steak. Try Trésor with strong-flavored cheeses such as Gorgonzola or sharp Cheddar.

How It's Made

Upon entering the winery, the hand-harvested grapes are destemmed and cold soaked for three days. Following the cold soak, yeast is added and pump overs commence, one to two times daily, for the duration of primary fermentation. The wine is drained and pressed, then moved to barrels for malolactic fermentation, remaining in individual lots until blending and bottling. The wine completes a total of 21 months barrel aging, allowing for the perfect balance of fruit, tannin and oak.

The Vintage

A dry winter led to early bud break with unfavorable weather during bloom that disrupted the pollination process and resulted in a reduction of crop yields. Spring and summer were warm and dry, and the first grapes were harvested a week and a half earlier than 2014, making it one the earliest harvests ever. With reduced yields and plenty of warm sunshine to ripen the grapes, this year’s wines are concentrated in aromas and flavors, and display great color and balanced tannins.
