Tasting notes: The 2014 Trinity is a Merlot predominant blend and includes smaller proportions of alternative varieties. These have added further complexity and palate interest.The leather and plum aromas of the Merlot combine with spice and red fruit characters of Tempranillo and Malbec. Cassis aromas and structural backbone are provided by the Cabernet family.Richness and soft, ripe tannins make a serious yet eminently drinkable wine.
The name is misleading, as this contains five grape varieties (55% Merlot, 17% Tempranillo, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec and 7% Syrah). It's a lush, expansive wine filled with dark fruit—think cassis and blueberry. Hints of asphalt, mocha and baking spices linger on the finish. ~91WE
