The grapes for the 2021 La Storia Chardonnay were sourced from the same old and established Russian River vineyard with small berries and clusters providing great concentration of aromas and flavors. The grapes were hand-picked early in the morning at the lowest temperature possible in small ? t bins. We pressed the fruit directly without destemming for preserving more of the delicate aromas. The entire lot was barrel fermented using three different types of yeast with partial malolactic fermentation to preserve the fruit expression of the grapes and to keep more of the natural acidity and freshness. The lees on the bottom of the barrels was stirred twice per month for increased mouthfeel and viscosity. Our 2021 Chardonnay has a typical for the variety and the style aromas of tropical fruits, ripe apples, peaches, and apricots. Further aeration reveals deeper aromas of toast with a touch of caramel and ripe Mayer lemons meringue and a bit of minerality. The mouth feel is generous and rich, with tamed acidity and long and round finish. Cheers!
We harvested the 2019 Merlot Block 500 grapes on October 7th. The average sugar at harvest was 25.5 Brix- ideal for making high quality, age worthy wines. Post pressing the wine was racked twice and pumped into 24% new, mostly French and other European oak barrels, the rest went into older , mixed barrels. Majority of the wine for the final La Storia blend came from Block 500 with few barrels added from block 510. Our 2019 La Storia Merlot is and has been consistently fine example of the ability of this classic Bordeaux variety to make solid, tasty and age worthy wines. The main aromas and flavors are of dark cherry, plums, a bit of black licorice and herbs. The new oak barrels contribute a touch of vanilla, brown sugar, cocoa dust, and toast. On the mouth the wine is soft and viscous, balancing the acidity and the tannins well for such a young wine. The finish is long and soft with suggestion of sweetness backed by ripe tannins. This wine will age well and will reward your patience if stored well in the next 3-6 years. Cheers!
This wine is dark purple in color, very attractive with intense blueberry and blackberry aromas, slighty smokey with hints of maple and brown sugar.
The blend is different from the previous vintage with Merlot being the leading variety. A great Merlot is characterized by soft tannins and ripe plums and cherry aromas, Malbec brings in more fruit with hints of violets and cassis; the Cab. Franc adds the “Bordeaux” essence. With more air the wine shows a complex yet still in developing stage aromas and flavors of cocoa, cinnamon, toast and maple. The mouth feel is medium to full with relatively dense tannins with long and juicy finish. Drink now through 2022. Cheers. 52% Merlot 25% Malbec 11% Cabernet Franc 7% Cabernet Sauvignon 4% Sangiovese 1% Syrah

2014 Harvest began with one of the earliest bud breaks in history. Our Old Vine block 601 Sangiovese was the first one to awaken in March 10th. The rest of the varieties followed with 3 weeks earlier than normal bud break and as you may guessed it the harvest started record early as well. Other than that the growing conditions were just about perfect with normal to slightly below normal yields. The grapes for our 2014Leo’s Pride were harvested the last week of September, 2014. After destemming and cold soaking for 5 days the grapes were fermented using native and “designer “yeast for average of 10 days. Post fermentation all lots were put through extended maceration for another 21 days. Leo’s Pride Cabernet is a commemorative bottling honoring Trentadue founder Leo Trentadue. The conceptual Lion’s head on the label is a link to more than a dozen lion sculptures around the estate. Our 2014 Leo’s Pride Cab has a dense ruby-purple color followed by abundant varietal aromas and flavors of blueberries, blackberry and black licorice with hint of herbs and ripe olives. The predominately French and other European oak barrels aging contributes aromas of vanilla, cocoa dust and slight toast. The mouth feel is dense and lush, with balanced acidy and very soft tannins due to the long barrel age. The alcohol content is modest and the acidity is relatively high suggesting excellent longevity for this wine. Cheers!

Trentadue California Champagne Rose is created using only select premium varietal wines. It is especially formulated to make it versatile, ideal for serving as an aperitif or to accompany hors d’oevres and light food of all kinds. It is an attractively delicate, fruity wine with a smooth, crisp finish. Trentadue California Champagne Rose is made mostly from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes from the Mendocino and Lodi regions, using the Charmat process. The base still wine is put through secondary fermentation in small 1,000-2,000 gallon glass lined tanks and the process takes about 45 days to complete. The result is a slightly sweet, mellow style Champagne with clean fruitiness and balanced acidity, a sparkling wine with a delicate flavor layered over impressions of strawberry, rose petals and watermelon. While we associate Champagne with special occasions and the holiday season, sparkling wines are great just about any time, as a cocktail before dinner, with lighter fare, and with dessert. Whatever your setting or occasion, Trentadue Champagne is a great choice for value and quality.
We produce this opulent dessert wine from Merlot grapes grown on our Geyserville Ranch. Borrowing from the traditions of port making, we add neutral grape spirits to stop fermentation trapping a percentage of sugar in the wine. Once Chocolate Amore is finished aging and is ready for bottling, we infuse a tiny amount of natural chocolate extract to the final blend, creating the perfect marriage of food and wine. This Merlot-based, port-styled chocolate flavored dessert wine is great over vanilla ice cream or as a stand-alone dessert.
