Winemaker 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."

Wine Enthusiast
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.

Central Coast

View all wine

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces the majority of the state's wine. The sprawling district covers most of the vineyard land between San Francisco and Santa Barbara from the coast inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley. Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types, and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including Monterey, Paso Robles, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Maria Valley, and Santa Cruz Mountains.

Just about every major international grape variety is planted within this vast AVA, from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. A significant proportion of the region’s produce is generic, inexpensive bulk wine, but the Central Coast is also home to many small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as everything in between.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
