Trotter 1/16 Winery
Region: Coombsville, Napa Valley, CA
"For this special Napa Valley red, I held back a barrel of the 2016 and one barrel of the 2017 Cabernet sauvignon from the same vineyard to blend together. Capturing a mini vertical of barreled wines. This wine is silky on the palate with rich fruit and well integrated tannins. It opens with perfumed notes of boysenberry, raspberry, leading to cherry pie, spiced pipe tobacco and caramel. The palate reveals chocolate covered espresso beans, blackberry, caramel and vanilla with a silky finish.
Dedicated to my husband, Ben for his patience and unrelenting support for my wine adventure. The original artwork for the label was created by Jeannine Luke."
