Trig Point

“A “trig” has been used for many years to establish boundary lines. Trigonometrical stations were set on the top of hills and used as surveying sites. Just as my father was a land surveyor and used these trigs as a reference, so do I when it comes to well known vineyard sites” Nick Goldschmidt, Winemaker.

Whiffs of green olive, black pepper and earth complement bold dark plum, black olive and blackberry flavors in this nicely structured, moderately tannic and complex wine. It is well knit together on the palate, concentrated and deep. Expect it to drink best from 2025 through 2032.
