Rich aromas of black cherry, ripe berries, and cassis with a touch of cedar and vanilla. The mouth is layered with flavors of raspberry, red currants, and plum jam. Ripe tannins focus the palate and provide a lengthy finish of spice and red fruit.
The 2013 vintage is even better than the near-perfect 2012 harvest! A warm and dry spring resulted in excellent berry set and a larger crop. Moderate temperatures throughout the growing season easily brought the fruit to full maturity. The wines of 2013 have great intensity and acidity; with beautiful aromas and flavors.
Vineyard: The Truchard Estate Vineyard is located in the Carneros region of the Napa Valley. It is 400 acres of hills and valleys which contain a variety of soils: clay, shale, sandstone, limestone, volcanic ash and rock. The combination of terrain, geology, and marine-moderated temperatures, provides ideal conditions for wine-growing. Cabernet Sauvignon is planted in several different sites - on steep, southwestern facing hillsides. The vines range from 17 - 39 years old, and produce wines that are deep in color, dominated by lush flavors of plum, berry, and spice. Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec are blended in to provide additional softness, structure, and complexity.
The 2003 vintage was an exceptional harvest. Unusually high springtime temperatures affected berry set; on average yields were down 20%. Normal summer temperatures allowed the small crop to ripen and easily reach full maturity. The wines from this vintage are extremely intense, with powerful aromas, rich flavors, and firm tannins.
Cabernet Sauvignon is the only wine produced by Truchard Vineyards with a “reserve” designation. It is a very limited bottling that is a tribute to the quality of this unique vineyard.
Made in a traditional Bordeaux style, this Cab is 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Cabernet Franc, with 1% each of Petit Verdot and Malbec adding some delightful qualities.
The 2004 vintage was nearly identical to the exceptional 2003 harvest. A dry spring with unusually high temperatures affected berry set and reduced yields by about 15%. Warmer summer temperatures easily ripened the small crop and led to an early harvest. 2004 produced big, powerful wines with rich aromas, ripe flavors, and excellent structure.
The 2014 vintage is nearly identical to the outstanding 2013 harvest! A dry winter followed by a warm, dry spring resulted in excellent berry set and an above average crop. Moderate temperatures throughout the growing season easily brought the fruit to full maturity. The wines of 2014 are elegant, with intense aromas and flavors.
Cabernet Sauvignon is the only wine produced by Truchard Vineyards with a “reserve” designation. It is a very limited bottling that is a tribute to the quality of this unique vineyard. Classic Cabernet aromas of plum, red berries, and cassis; with hints of cedar, cocoa, and sweet vanilla. The mouth round and intense - layered with flavors of blackberry, cherries, and raspberry. Velvety tannins lift the palate and provide an elegant finish of berry and spice.
The 2015 vintage was one of the earliest harvests on record! A very dry winter forced early bud-break. Cool spring conditions during flowering led to poor set; yields were down almost 40%. Moderate summer temperatures quickly brought the small crop to full maturity. The wines of 2015 are powerful and concentrated, yet elegant.
The Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon was first produced by Truchard in 1994 after a "mistake" led us to discovering the potential of one of our best locations. This specific block of Cabernet grapes is found on a steep west facing slope that was planted back in 1982. The western exposure allows the vines to capture the warm afternoon sun producing a powerful yet elegant wine that will age gracefully 20-25 years.
