“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.
Named a “BEST BUY FROM OUR YEAR’S BEST US CABERNETS” 12/21/2020
This is Nick Goldschmidt’s project, based at a benchland vineyard facing south-southeast, and it’s a pretty astonishing Sonoma cabernet for the price. Its rush of tannins – more like those of mountain-grown fruit than benchland – adds depth to the wine’s sumptuous fruit. It’s formidable and graceful, and if it lacks some detail, it is, after all, $24.
