2003 Trio Meritage
AmericanWinery.com is pleased to provide you with Winery-Direct information.
Great wines don’t just happen. They are the result of lifetimes of experience and passion. You can taste them both in this 2003 Trio vineyard Meritage.
Will Nord and his family have been growing grapes in Napa for a long time. The Nord vineyards and his Trio vineyard in particular are at the cutting edge of modern viticultural practices. Add to that the perfect field blend of Bordeaux varietals and you’ve got the perfect match.
To this we add our 3 decades for winemaking talent, education, experimentation and learning from our peers and you have this wine. Our friends say its a Napa Cab wine made by a Sonoma winemaker. This means the wine is more elegant, more reserved, compared to the more tannin, more aggressive Napa made counterparts. It’s very much a mouthful, with big forward flavors that hit every corner, every place you experience wine. It’s the Meritage experience at its penultimate.
