The 2018 Trivulet is our version of an old-world right bank classic blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. These noble varietals marry so well, no wonder this combo has been considered to be one of the best in the world.

The 2018 Trivulet aromatics are a luxurious blend of fresh raspberries, red currants and delicate floral. On the palate, vibrant juicy flavors are accented with hints of fresh minerality that lead to a bright, mouthwatering finish.

Winemaker Notes

We really like to blend, but coming up with a name can be tricky. To stay with the river theme, we found the word “Rivulet” (a very small stream). This word would have been perfect, but it was taken by another name seeker. So undeterred, we added a “T” and created our own word, “Trivulet”, pronounced with French flair, like beret.

Vineyard Notes

A mild wet winter led to a cool wet spring. With bud break at a near normal pace we headed into June with yet more rain. July and August really heated up with temperatures over 100°F and smoky skies. September revealed ideal conditions for a beautiful uneventful harvest.
