“I’ve fallen in love. These are the wines I've always looked for in California but so rarely found.”
– Hugh Johnson
That’s what the world’s best-selling wine writer (and one of the wine industry’s most respected tasters) said after sampling this wine at Trinité, the Lurton family’s new Sonoma estate. As our customer, you have exclusive access to this elegant red from one of Bordeaux’s most storied families.
You can really taste the Bordeaux heritage in this tiny-batch beauty. A classic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (45%), Cabernet Franc (31%) and Merlot (24%) that was aged in the finest French oak (à la Bordelaise, of course!), it’s full of fresh berries and smoky oak notes – and will improve with careful cellaring over the next decade. Here’s Hugh on what to expect in your glass:
The nose is edgy and eager; bright berries and smoky oak in harmony. The palate, tight and vital; classic high-class young claret. Massive vigor with a light touch. Full of promise and intrigue. Starry.
This seriously impressive bottle will make an excellent addition to any wine enthusiast’s rack (serve with fine filet or rack of lamb and prepare to wow your guests!). We know Hugh took home a few bottles for himself – order your share today and you’ll be in very good company.
