Description

Truchard Carneros Cabernet Sauvignon

Truchard Carneros Cabernet Sauvignon has a complex nose of plum, cherry and cassis; with a touch of cedar wood and vanilla. There are flavours of raspberry, redcurrant and plum jam. Ripe tannins provide a lengthy finish.

Tony and Jo Ann Truchard both grew up in Texas and had plans to spend most of their lives there. They both graduated from the University of Texas in Austin. Jo Ann was teaching school in Austin and Tony was getting ready to start Medical School at Southwestern Medical School in Dallas when they met at a country dance in Jo Ann’s hometown of La Grange, Texas. They married in 1964. After graduating from Southwestern, Tony completed his internship through the Army at Walter Reed Memorial and his residency at Brooke General Hospital in San Antonio.

Tony then received orders to report to Korea for a two year tour; however, a very pregnant Jo Ann changed all of that by slipping on a grape in the grocery store in San Antonio and breaking her knee. Four days later, sporting a full leg cast, Jo Ann delivered their fourth baby and their lives changed. Instead of Korea, the Army decided to send Tony to Northern California to serve as the medical commander for a base near the Nevada border.

During Tony’s tour in California the Truchard family took a number of road trips. On one such trip, after checking in at the Presidio in San Francisco, the family drove up to the Napa Valley to see the vineyards. Tony thought it would be “fun” to buy some Napa property and plant a vineyard. During the next two decades, Tony continued to buy property until he had 400 adjoining acres. At the same time, their family grew to include 4 daughters and 2 sons.

Sal De Ianni serves as Winemaker for Truchard Vineyards. Originally from a suburb of Milwaukee, Sal entered the wine industry through a strange twist of fate: while completing his graduate degree in Analytical Chemistry at Northwestern University, he decided to enroll in wine appreciation classes in order to break away from the complexities of chemistry. Six months later, the wine courses ended up being more compelling, and ultimately he decided to pursue a job in the wine industry.

The vines at Truchard Vineyards benefit not only from the cooling fog and moderate temperatures of Carneros, but are also influenced by the estate’s unique topography, consisting of rolling hills, steep ravines, and numerous valleys. In addition, they are positioned across a wide variety of soil types including clay, shale, sandstone, lava rock, and volcanic ash. These factors allow the Truchards to grow diverse grape varieties, each planted with its optimal growing conditions in mind and minimal intervention.

This Cabernet is a limited release showing great depth of colour, rich blackcurrant flavours together with a firm, fine grained tannin finish- a wine of great concentration and style which can be cellared with confidence. After a short burst of heat in late January and early February, it was warm and stable for the remainder of the vintage producing richly flavoured red wines of exceptional quality. Mentor is an ideal accompaniment to duck, goose and game dishes. It is superb with oxtail, braised lamb shanks and wonderful with a fine aged cheddar.
