Last Year's Vintage (2010)
Wine Advocate 93+ Points
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Central Park West flows across the palate with layers of expressive dark, red fruit, mocha, crushed flowers and spices. Deep yet silky, the 2010 impresses for its fabulous overall balance and class. Bright floral notes add lift and focus to the finish. This is a classic expression of St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon. Constantly changing in the glass, the Central Park West is at times powerful, yet in other moments it comes across as much more feminine and delicate. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030.
Even though this wine bears a New York City name, it screams St. Helena. In 2011, we hand-picked this vineyard multiple times over a span of nearly a month. With these valley floor origins and warm St. Helena climate, this is an eminently drinkable and classic St. Helena Cabernet. It boasts a beautiful dark color with concentrated aromas of black tea, purple fruits, vanilla and savory spice. Black cherry and plum flavors lead into a soft mid-palate and a long, velvety finish.
Our Central Park West Vineyard, named in a nostalgic nod to the New York City origins of the Trinchero family, is located at the southern end of the St. Helena appellation. This 22-acre vineyard is a level site with deep, loamy soils, good sun exposure with dappled light and excellent air circulation—the ideal situation for producing classic Napa Valley Cabernet.
2011 Growing Season
The 2011 growing season began with a wet cool spring. Rainfall lasted into the middle of June affecting bloom and diminishing yields in many vineyards. The cool weather trend continued all summer delaying ripening throughout Napa Valley. Since we are estate, we diligently monitor all our vineyards, adjusting our viticultural practices frequently. It was necessary to significantly open up the vine canopies to ensure adequate sun exposure, air circulation and ripening. Overall flavors in the grapes were achieved at lower sugar levels making lower alcohol wines that exhibit finesse and balance.
