2016 Trujillo Cabernet Sauvignon Healy Vineyard Napa

Share on Facebook

The is one of the three key vineyards for Trujillo Cabernet. It consists of four and a half acres on the northwestern edge of St. Helena. Soils are of alluvial clay loam from Sulphur Creek fan provides superb drainage while cooling winds passing between Spring Mountain and the Mayacmas range allow clusters to ripen slowly. Wines made from this site are of elegance over power. The 2016 vintage has us breaking out of the long California drought years into ideal grape growing conditions. Grape quality and wine quality was stellar in this 2016 vintage giving me opportunity to make a small portion as a Vineyard Designate Reserve Cabernet. I’m pleased to showcase Healy Vineyard in my Trujillo Reserve series of single vineyard wines. This 2016 Healy Cabernet defiantly expresses more depth and density over past vintages. The aromas are almost overgenerous with lush blackberry, sweet dark plum and spice. The flavors of black cherry and cassis are rich and uplifting with a nice gentle grip of fine tannin to carry the wine to a long flavorful, silky finish. Its signature notes of coco mocha aromas and flavor are delightfully laced throughout. Rich, velvety, plush and lush is 2016 Healy Reserve Cab. This wine will only improve with time! -Michael Trujillo, Winemaker
