Tasting Notes and Description
Tasting Notes For Treana Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 2018
The 2018 vintage began with reasonable weather throughout bloom and set. During the sizing phase, we experienced very warm weather that affected berry growth on many varietals. In mid-September, while harvest slowed due to moderate temperatures, the prolonged ripening period maintained vine balance and higher fruit quality. Overall, the 2017 vintage delivered yields slightly below normal while upholding our desired fruit characteristics and quality.
After harvest, vineyard lots were fermented individually in stainless-steel tanks for 14 to 20 days. Extended macerations and carefully managed pump overs enhanced the extraction of color and tannin. The varietals were aged separately for 15 months in a combination of 10% new barrels and 5% once used, of which 78% was French and 22% American Oak. The initial blend was assembled in the late fall of 2018 and aged an additional three months in 64% brand new oak and 24% once used, of which 100% was French Oak. The wine was racked only twice during its cellar life, with the final racking occurring just prior to bottling.
An excellent display of Paso Roble Cabernet. At first glance, this dark crimson wine sets the stage for the beautiful aromas of warm chocolate, roasted coffee & toasty cedar. On the palate, intense dark fruit, sweet vanilla combine with smoky-oak to give a long rich mouth feel that finishes with balanced acidity and moderate, velvety tannins.
