2014 Trinchero Forte
2014 Trinchero Forte This Bordeaux-style blend is a vibrant and elegant 2014 red wine, delivering intricate aromas of lavender and juicy blackberry on the nose. Layered flavors of spiced ripe plum and cassis are revealed across a multi-layered palate, framed by smooth tannins and a voluptuous mouthfeel.
Malbec typically ripens midway through the growing season and produces small, intensely colored grapes. As it is so sensitive to its growing environment, the level of ripeness has a considerable effect on the structure of the eventual wine.
In the Loire Valley, Malbec is blended with Cabernet Franc and Gamay, sometimes as part of a sparkling Saumur wine.
