2016 Treana Red Blend
An anticipated El Niño gave us about eight inches of rain in Paso Robles, which was less than hoped for, but much needed after the four prior drought years. The rainfall had a positive effect on fruit quality and yields, specifically for the Rhone and Bordeaux varietals. In 2016, most varieties of grapes came in above average in terms of yield and quality, which was a welcomed surprise. The overall 2016 vintage delivered high quality fruit with above expectations on color and fruit intensity.
The newest release of Treana Red is brooding with power and finesse. At first glance the deep burgundy core sets the stage for seductive aromas of cassis & elusive oak aromas that lead into flavors of rich vanilla, baking spices & black tea. Full bodied and rich with a beautifully balanced acidity, Treana Red will age gracefully for 10 - 15 years.
