Winemaker's Notes

The goal with all of our Trinchero Family wines is to offer the purest expression of the grape variety; fruit-driven and delicious. The 2004 Trinchero Family Merlot is dark, rich, lush and remarkably smooth. It delivers ripe juicy red cherry and jammy currant accented with black tea and roasted jalapeno. The ripe fruit and spice carry through to a velvet-textured finish.

Juicy ripe fruit, flavor-enhancing acidity and medium-plus body make our Trinchero Family Merlot a staple for many of our winery dishes. Our chef pairs this versatile wine with Rosemary Roasted Lamb Chops with Caramelized Cippollini Onions and Mashed Vanilla Sweet Potatoes.

Merlot(mehr-LOW) No second fiddle Merlot is coming back into its own. High popularity led to mass production, which then led to a backlash towards the variety (remember Miles in Sideways?).
