Trinitas Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
Grown east of Highway 29 just south of Oakville Cross Road, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon displays aromatics of spiced plums, black cherry, vanilla, and espresso. It has a rich entry reminiscent of chocolate-covered cherries. Barrel aged 18 months in 57% new French oak.
Trinitas celebrates the connection among sun, soil, and humanity by working closely with its grower society throughout Northern California to source a broad range of varietals from the regions where climate and soil conditions are most favorable. The Busch family balances their resources to grow their business, benefit the community, and honor and serve God in all they do. "May God bless you and guide you all the days of your life" (Time & Steph Busch, Proprietors). A pre-fermentation cold soak with traditional pump-over cap management and a cool fermentation preserved the unique fruit qualities of this wine. After malolactic occurred in wood, an additional 57% new French oak was used to enhance the spice-flavor components and to frame the fruit with added structure in the mid-palate. During 27 months of aging this wine was racked once and was lightly filtered before bottling.
