2014 Central Park West Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon
September 16-30, 2014
20 months, 100% French Oak (70% new)
Our Central Park West Vineyard, named in a nostalgic nod to the New York City origins of the Trinchero family, is located at the southern end of the St. Helena appellation. This 22-acre vineyard is a level site with deep, loamy soils, good sun exposure and excellent air circulation — the ideal situation for producing classic Napa Valley Cabernet.
With plenty of sunshine and a characteristically warm climate, this wine is an exceptional translation of the St. Helena terroir, despite its New York City name. A stunner that draws you in with enchantingly deep purple color and aromas of vine-ripe blackberries, currants and black raspberries, toasted brioche and an underlying earthy-minerality. Mouth coating flavors of juicy plum and blueberry crumble along with hints of graphite and wet gravel lead into an enveloping finish.
