Trinchero Forte Red 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Made from a majority of Malbec, with smaller additions of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Petite Sirah, this wine is black as night, tart and taut in texture. A dizzying array of violet, garrigue and lavender give it an exotic element that's inviting against a full-bodied backdrop, finished in gunpowder and cigar box.
Exhibits a variety of flavors and captures an elegant mouthfeel, but loses focus and density on the finish. Nonetheless, this holds together long enough to get you to the second and third glass. Malbec, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Petite Sirah. Drink now through 2024. 2,100 cases made.
