Winemaker's Notes

The Tinto is the original inspiration behind Trenza; the idea was to make a stellar red blend that embodies the greatness of SLO County. This is a big, bold wine with ripe, stunning flavors backed by racy acidity. It is a blend of Garnacha (Grenache) and Monastrell (Mourvèdre) from the warm Paso Robles region, and Syrah and Tempranillo from the cooler Edna and Arroyo Grande Valleys. Each variety brings a different element to the party. The Syrah and Tempranillo were picked ripe and co-fermented to show off their dark color and tannin structure backed by major blue fruit and white pepper - the Garnacha is all about sweet floral notes of rose petals and cherries – the Monastrell adds small amounts of spice, pepper and earthiness.

Tasting Notes from Winemaker Christian Roguenant: "This is not a wimpy wine! The color of the Tinto is deep and concentrated, as are the flavors. It has aromas of cedar, vanilla, cinnamon, smoky teriyaki, bacon and dry fig. The taste is gamy, rich and earthy with dark berry fruit and a solid tannin structure. It finishes big but is balanced."

Critical Acclaim

"Unusual, distinctive, and a wonderful first release from this new brand, a member of the Niven (Baileyana) family of wines. A blend of Tempranillo, Mourvèdre and Grenache, it’s utterly dry, richly tannic and well-structured, with earthy flavors of cherries, blueberries, herbs, unsweetened cocoa, black pepper and other dusty spices. A brilliant and provocative wine from winemaker Christian Roguenant. Editors’ Choice."

I would buy this wine again, and recommend it to friends. Deep, but subtle, smooth, a great nose, and more flavorful than most blends at the cost.
