Layers of wild berry, cherry and red plum are accented by violet, cedar, cacao, and star anise flavors. Unfolds gracefully with a round mid-palate and medium to full-bodied tannins. Mineral notes and sweet baking spices add complexity, ends with dried currant and mocha on the finish. Born from a love of wine, the Trios ‘Proprietary Red’ 2008 is a unique expression of our special vineyard site on Sonoma Valley’s Monte Rosso (Red Mountain) within the pending Moon Mountain AVA. Balancing elegance and structure, Trios speaks of this origin. The wine brings together classic noble varietals in a non-traditional blend. The blend is driven by Cabernet Sauvignon, and balanced with Merlot & Syrah. Trios is named for these three main grape varietals that comprise the wine. Trios is produced with a vision of quality without compromise that informs every step of our winegrowing process.
