The 2018 Trujillo Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon expresses everything about the vintage. Tremendous concentration and depth commence with the aromatics. Forward aromas of black cherry, black currant, and dark baker’s chocolate along with delightful hints of sweet cedar and subtle sweet clove. The generous flavors are big and plentiful. The forward flavors only compliment the velvety richness and balanced structure, giving way to a pleasing and lingering finish.

Trujillo Winery

Napa Valley, California

Winemaker, Michael Trujillo, discovered his passion for winemaking in the early 1980s during a spring break from his college studies as an engineer. On a road trip to California, he stayed with a family friend who had a small winery in Napa Valley. It was a life- changing visit, as Michael began to work alongside Jim Allen and his brother Steve in the planting of Sequoia Grove’s vineyard on the Rutherford Bench. For his namesake wine, Michael blends grapes from several of the finest vineyards in Napa Valley and works closely with the growers in developing cultivation practices that yield notable fruit year after year. Trujillo Cabernet Sauvignon is the realization of Michael’s history, knowledge and experience, bringing his keen love of the vineyard together with more than 34 years of winemaking proficiency.

 

VINTAGE NOTES

The 2018 growing season was quite seamless and composed throughout. Early rains gave way to a mild Spring -perfect for the bud break and fruit set. Summer tons of that great Napa Valley sunshine during the days and was accompanied each evening and morning by the cool marine influences Napa Valley is so famous for. The grapes basked in this amazing growing season effortlessly to their ultimate ripeness and perfection. A season for great flavor development, wonderful complexity, and richness in the harvest which will only bring us great wines for the 2018 vintage.
