2016 Trujillo Cabernet Sauvignon Napa

This vintage will be remembered as one of the earliest completions of harvest on record. It will also be remembered as one of the lightest, due to the unseasonably warm temperatures in late winter that set the vineyards to an early budbreak. Cool temperatures in May, during the peak of bloom, caused an uneven fruit set and ultimately resulted in a smaller crop. Although the yields were low, the quality of the wines are fantastic. My 2015 Trujillo Cabernet Sauvignon focuses on a balance and finesse that takes advantage of all five Bordeaux grape varietals. Elegant and approachable, the aromas are abundantly layered with black cherry, coco dust, plum and a slight hint of cola. In this vintage, 85% Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with Cabernet Franc and Merlot, bringing a velvety structure and supple depth, with a lengthy finish. The small addition of Malbec and Petit Verdot deepens its complexity with a rich, silky balance. While enjoyable now, this Cabernet will gracefully age for many years to come. —Michael Trujillo
