Treo blend is blended with Petite Sirah as the backbone, joined the mix of Syrah, Zinfandel, Merlot and a hint of Malbec resulting in a wine that is rich and full of flavor. The red fruits are ripe and bold, but not overly so. Tannins are purposefully softer and easy drinking, crafted to ensure the wine is accessible when you decide to open the bottle.
‘Early, Excellent and Evenly Ripening’ were the watchwords of the season on the North Coast, where most of our Treo is sourced, and the Lake-Mendocino-Napa core of the North Coast was particularly in good form. Moderate temperatures were the norm through the winter and spring, with decidedly little moisture, bringing on an early bud break. Heat was constant through the summer, with one balmy blip, so grapes hung around on the vine, ripening slowly and fully, layering on complex layers of flavor.
