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.

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.
