Tasting Notes:

One should not open this bottle without first learning the story behind the name Trotter 1/16 Winery. The unique title refers to Winemaker/Proprietor Stephanie Trotter-Zacharia's family roots. She is one of 16 children and the only one making wine. 

Stephanie is drawn to working with small vineyard locations. A single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has a unique sense of place; the French romantically refer to it as "terroir". There are distinctions extracted from the David Fulton Vineyard. On the nose aromas of blackberry pie, cassis, dusty earth and hints of dark honey waft from the glass. On the palate, an explosion of flavors including crème de cassis, blueberry, plum, rose petal and dark chocolate. The wine is complex with balanced acidity. The finish is mesmerizing with a long, lingering mouthfeel and balanced tannins.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
Exploding with fruit and earth driven flavors, this Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with lamb, beef, pork, sausage, grilled meats, stews, and game. Dishes with black olives, black pepper, pungent herbs, and mushrooms will also complement nicely. Hard cheeses and salami make a perfect accompaniment as well. A cherry chocolate cake would make a delicious dessert pairing.
About the Winery
Trotter 1/16 Winery With one goal in mind, Stephanie left her home and her family in Philadelphia and set out to California to pursue her dream of making wine. After years of working her way up from tasting rooms to cellar master to apprentice winemaker learning the trade, she produced her first vintage in 2011. It was a challenging year to make wine in Napa Valley. Cool weather and heavy rains were obstacles, insurmountable for some. Learn more
