Winemaker Notes

2007 vintage was one of the great vintages of the decade. During my nineteen vintages in California there have been several exceptional vintages and 2007 is definitely shaping up to be one of those. We have three blocks of Merlot on our Geyserville Estate and Block 500 has consistently been the best for the last ten years. With this bottling, I decided to bottle the wine from the 500 block on it's own for the first time. The block was separated into two halves, North and South, and we treated each differently in regards to irrigation, pruning, crop levels and harvesting time. Then in the cellar, I divided the two halves into even smaller lots for different fermentation treatments. Every lot was fermented with different yeast and aged on the skins for varying lengths of time. Then the lots were aged in different types of new oak.

As you can see, we paid a special amount of attention to this wine and I believe the result is a wine with greatly exaggerated, varietaly correct aromas and flavors of dark stone fruit, layers of blackberry, black licorice, new leather and sweet and toasty oak. On the mouth the wine is full bodied with present, but balanced tannins, a juicy middle and a long finish. The low pH and tannin structure will support several years of aging. Cheers !

A really nice Merlot, and look at that price. It's dry, elegant and entirely balanced, with a rich earthy texture. Shows classic flavors of black cherries, black currants, violets, anise and sweet sandalwood. Terrific value.

Trentadue Trentadue Tasting Room - Geyserville, CA Winery Image

The Trentadue family arrived in Sonoma County long before the region gained a reputation as the Wine Country. Life-long, hands-on agriculturists, Evelyn and Leo Trentadue contributed significantly to the advancement of their region over the years. In 1959, the Trentadues decided to flee the developers encroaching on their apricot and cherry orchards in Sunnyvale, the area known today around the world as Silicon Valley. To preserve their way of life, these hard-working Italian ranchers purchased 208 acres of land in Sonoma County's then remote Alexander Valley.

For over 55 years, they have been growing premium wine grapes, with some vines dating back to 1886. Their farming practices reflect their commitment to exceptional fruit quality and their stewardship of the land from which it comes. They strive to balance the traditions of the area’s early Italian growers and the ever-evolving viticulture industry. Sustainable agriculture is practiced, as they are stewards of their land and utilize all of the elements available to put the most they can offer into each bottle of wine while retaining the viability of their Estate for generations to come.

California

Known for elegant wines that combine power and finesse, Carneros is set in the rolling hills that straddle the southernmost parts of both Sonoma and Napa counties. The cooling winds from the abutting San Pablo Bay, combined with lots of midday California sunshine, create an ideal environment for producing wines with a perfect balance of crisp acidity and well-ripened fruit.

This cooler pocket of California lends itself to growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. Carneros is an important source of sparkling wines made in the style of Champagne as well.

With generous fruit and supple tannins, Merlot is made in a range of styles from everyday-drinking to world-renowned and age-worthy. Merlot is the dominant variety in the wines from Bordeaux’s Right Bank regions of St. Emilion and Pomerol, where it is often blended with Cabernet Franc to spectacular result. Merlot also frequently shines on its own, particularly in California’s Napa Valley. Somm Secret—As much as Miles derided the variety in the 2004 film, Sideways, his prized 1961 Château Cheval Blanc is actually a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
