Cabernet Sauvignon & 25% Syrah
The 2015 Treana Red is a deeply colored wine with a purple-black
core that fades to a ruby rim. Intense aromas of freshly picked blackberries,
muddled black and red currants, along with dried cranberries give way to
underlying tones of dried rose petals, violets, potpourri and clove, while
caramelized oak notes are spiced by a hint of cinnamon. A velvety rush of ripe
blackberries and pomegranate fruits envelop the palate, while subtle nuances of
baking spices, cocoa powder and dried vanilla beans add to the wine’s
complexity. Full bodied and rich with a beautifully balanced acidity, Treana
Red will age gracefully for 10 -15 years.
91 points Vinous
Opaque ruby. Spice-tinged dark berry, cherry and pipe tobacco
scents are complemented by suggestions of mocha and allspice. Blackberry,
bitter cherry and spice cake flavors show very good depth and a subtle touch of
candied licorice. The spiciness builds on the long, sappy finish, which features
pliant tannins and a sweet, lingering touch of vanilla.
