The creation of Trilogy goes back to 1984 when our family set out to make the best wine possible by selecting the highest quality wine lots culled from our estate vineyards. By blending traditional Bordeaux varietals--Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc--we created one of the original Meritage wines. Over the years we’ve added other Bordeaux varietals to this Cabernet-based blend, always seeking to create the very finest wine from each individual vintage. Our 2012 Trilogy brings together Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Petite Verdot in a wine that is rich, robust and elegantly refined. With beautiful overlapping aromas of cassis, black licorice, olallieberry and sandalwood, this multi-layered wine offers deeply concentrated flavors of cherry, mulberry, and raspberry pastilles mingled with notes of white pepper and dark chocolate. A product of a great vintage, this is a big Trilogy, with a generous texture and a long, luxurious finish that lasts and lasts.
