The word 'trine' is defined as a close group of three, and this wine pays homage to the families of Pepper Bridge: the McKibbens, Goffs and Pellets. It a creative blend rather than varietal-based wine allowing Winemaker Jean-François Pellet more freedom of expression. Each vintage contains a unique combination of Bordeaux's traditional five red grapes.
Information & Acclaim:
The Wine Advocate: "It has a polished, silky, medium to full-bodied profile to go with impressive crème de cassis, spring flowers, and graphite aromas and flavors."
Vinous: "Bright ruby-red. Sour cherry, dried herbs, licorice, violet and a sexy whiff of meat on the nose. Quite suave on entry, then juicy and energetic in the middle palate, with flavors of dark berries and flowers lifted by a slightly high-toned pomegranate note. The subtle, slowly mounting finish promises a graceful evolution in bottle."
Wine Spectator: "Precise and trim, with aromas of boysenberry and olive that open to firmly layered flavors of black cherry and licorice, finishing with big but polished tannins."
