Trinitas Cellars – 2005 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Only 240 cases produced!

20% off plus shipping fees. $40 on Indie Winemakers only.

About this wine

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon is from the lower elevations of Howell Mountain and about 10% is from our Oakville vineyard. The soil is extremely rich which translates into the fruit-forward wines. The complex nose starts with light notes of toast and vanilla. As the wine opens, the aromatics evolve into dried cherries, cedar and a hint of green olive. The palate has an amazingly floral entry which explodes into black fruit on the mid-palate. The finish is elegant and lengthy.  This Napa Valley Cabernet spent 27 months in 60% New French Oak.

Food and wine

Pair with Osso Bucco. See our Recipe Tab for preparation instructions.

York Mountain AVA (American Viticultural Area) vineyards are situated at an average of 1,500 feet and benefit from low-vigor soil, steep slopes, long sunshine hours and cool coastal breezes. A perfect growing climate for Cabernet Sauvignon.

The tasting group’s most consistent remark was how this wine smoothed out with air time. We recommend opening this wine 1 hour before tasting. This full-bodied bottling has a beautiful, aromatic nose, an acid backbone, and a lush, velvety mouth-feel.

We noted classic Cabernet Sauvignon characteristics with concentrated flavors of black fruits and black pepper. There are subtle oak influences on this wine.

The 2005 Vintage Cab was tasted on May 3, 2008 by a panel of 8 tasters in a blind tasting format and paired with Short Ribs with Tagliatelle.  To summarize our tasting notes:

What a stunning Cab. This wine lives up to the famous Heitz name. The outstanding fruit comes through the nose with dark berries, some cherry aromas and a bit of earth/dusty cedar. The palate has lots of layers with focused fruit and a luxurious, mid-palate feel. Great tannin and acid balance really shined with the food. Enjoyable now, but will mature nicely for up to 10 years.

Excellent Cab. Delicious fruit, blackberry, currants, nice balance, smooth, low on the tannins and acid but very enjoyable for the next several years.
