Truchard Vineyards is a small, artisanal and family-owned estate located in Carneros (Napa Valley). After medical School, the Army and a tale of slippery grapes Tony and Jo Ann Truchard settled in Carneros where they have managed a successful vineyard and grown exceptional grapes for almost 45 years. Through their hard work and devotion to this unique property, they helped pioneer grape growing in the Carneros and in 1989, they established a winery and began producing wines using only their estate-grown fruit. 
Over the years, the Truchards slowly expanded their estate and to this day they have managed to acquire roughly 160has of land and still sell some of their fruit to some bigger, more well known estates in and around Napa Valley. 

Tasting Note:
The vines for this wine range from 19 - 42 years old. The wine is quite elegant for Carneros, with the Truchard’s refined aromas of raspberry, plum, cassis, cedar, and vanilla. The mouth is layered with rich flavours of ripe cherries, red currants, and berry jam.
Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec are all blended in to provide additional softness, structure and complexity. It’s juicy and smooth now with ripe tannins focused on the palate providing a long pleasant finish, yet this wine has lots of potential for the future.

This is a Dry, Full bodied wine with Medium+ acidity and Medium+ tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with High alcohol and a Medium finish.
