ABOUT THIS WINE
Mario’s Vineyard, St. Helena Named for our pioneering founder Mario Trinchero, this rare jewel of a site surrounds our winery in St. Helena, along a narrow, 13-acre stretch of the valley floor formed by river erosion. A northwest exposure, coupled with a mix of gravel, loam and alluvial soils, makes Mario’s Vineyard ideally suited for opulent Cabernet Sauvignon with impressive structure and velvety tannins. Central Park West Vineyard, St. Helena With its nostalgic nod to our family’s roots in New York City, our Central Park West Vineyard rests on the valley floor at the southern end of the St. Helena appellation. This 22-acre site, with its ample sunshine and deep loamy and alluvial soils, is perfectly suited for growing classic red Bordeaux varieties. Planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, this vineyard produces decadent wines with layer upon layer of complex flavor.
92 POINTS - "Notes of ripe blackberries and plums with hints of licorice, chocolate, crushed rocks and bay leaf. Full-bodied with layers of firm tannins and a velvety texture. An array of ripe dark fruit and crushed stones on the palate. Lightly chewy. Try in 2023." - James Suckling
The 2019 Mario’s Cabernet Sauvignon is lush, with aromas of warm fig, cassis, fresh plum and mocha. Concentrated blackberries, wild raspberries and black tea flavors are complemented with a soft texture and satin-smooth finish.
