Winemaker's Notes

One of the noblest of all varietals. It is the grape most associated with Bordeaux in France. Cabernet sauvignon was known by two clones (or strains) in the eighteenth century, Petite Vidure and Grande Vidure, whose name comes from vigne dure, or hard vine. Grande vidure was the preferred clone for its quality. DNA testing has concluded that the parentage of cabernet sauvignon is cabernet franc and sauvignon (blanc), probably via accidental cross-breeding between neighboring vineyards. Trentadue has a very limited production of cabernet sauvignon. Our wine has a jammy black cherry essence, coffee, tar, and tobacco impressions. Produced entirely from 25- to 30-year-old estate-grown Dry Creek Valley vines. It adds depth and structure to many of our wines such as our Merlot and Sangiovese.

The Trentadues were among the very first to plant new vines in Sonoma County since the days of Prohibition. Italians love their red wines, especially hearty reds like Carignane. In 1962, the Trentadue family began planting new Carignane vines in addition to the 68 acres of old vines already growing on their ranch. Now more than 35 years old, these vines are among the oldest producing Carignane vineyards in America. The family remains steadfastly devoted to this grape, and their wine ranks indisputably among just a handful of top ranked California Carignane.

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
