Vineyard Notes
Mario’s Vineyard, St. Helena Named for our pioneering founder Mario Trinchero, this rare jewel of a site surrounds our winery in St. Helena, along a narrow, 13-acre stretch of the valley floor formed by river erosion. A northwest exposure, coupled with a mix of gravel, loam and alluvial soils, makes Mario’s Vineyard ideally suited for opulent Cabernet Sauvignon with impressive structure and velvety tannins. Central Park West Vineyard, St. Helena With its nostalgic nod to our family’s roots in New York City, our Central Park West Vineyard rests on the valley floor at the southern end of the St. Helena appellation. This 22-acre site, with its ample sunshine and deep loamy and alluvial soils, is perfectly suited for growing classic red Bordeaux varieties. Planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, this vineyard produces decadent wines with layer upon layer of complex flavor.
Production Notes
Universally speaking, 2015 produced lower yields but excellent quality and concentration. Due in part to the drought, but more so an extended period of cool weather during the bloom period in May and June, our grape clusters were on the lighter side and our berries stayed smaller with thicker skins. The consistently warm summer led to slightly earlier-than-normal ripening on the valley floor and highstress conditions in our mountain vineyards. The resulting wines are beautifully fruity and focused with terrific acidity.
Winemaker Notes
“The 2015 Mario’s Cabernet Sauvignon has a pretty ruby red color. The aromatics are big and elegant with plenty of briary red fruits, red raspberry, dried pomegranates and red cherry. There are also some floral elements like cherry blossoms. The tannins are soft, approachable and fuzzy like the skin of a peach. Lots of red fruit back up the wine with subtle hints of caramel, vanilla and brioche. The finish is long but not overwhelming. The tannins dance on your tongue finishing with a sweet, ripe, silky texture.” —Mario Monticelli
