TRUEBLOOD™ CHARDONNAY 2012
REVIEW BY MARC KAUFMANN
TRUEBLOOD™ MT. VEEDER CABERNET SAUVIGNON
This full bodied artisan style cabernet sauvignon was made from 100% cabernet sauvignon grapes from high up on Mt. Veeder. The grapes were picked by hand, sorted by hand then carefully placed in French oak barrels for 27 months before bottling resulting in an intense, rich and concentrated wine with aromas of black cherry, cocoa, cassis, and hints of lavender with dense, ripe flavors of black currant, spice, mocha and sweet tobacco. This is a well-rounded wine with long integrated fine tannins.

TRUEBLOOD™ ST. HELENA CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2011
This full-bodied artisan cabernet sauvignon is made from 100% cabernet grapes from St. Helena, in northern Napa Valley. The handpicked grapes were nurtured, and carefully aged in new French oak for 27 months. The result is an intense, concentrated wine rich with aromas of blackberry, sweet herbs and licorice. On the palate, boysenberry, cedar and chocolate create a balancing act to complete this special vintage.

"Violet color. Aromas and flavors of olives, herbs, and spiced fruits and nuts with a satiny, vibrant, fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, interesting, medium-long craisin, chestnut honey, and cedar finish with chewy, crunchy tannins and moderate oak. A spicy, silky, savory Napa cabernet with nicely balanced oak." – Tasting.com
TRUEBLOOD™ PINOT NOIR
This artisan style pinot noir was made from 100% pinot noir grapes that were carefully picked by hand, sorted by hand and then carefully placed in French oak barrels for 15 months before bottling, resulting in an elegant wine. Cherry, clove, brown sugar, warm spice, with floral accent aromas with cherry and vanilla flavors lead to a refreshing long finish of mixed berries.
