Michael Trujillo has been making wine in the Napa Valley for decades now. He had a long run with his Karl Lawrence label, which was “retired” after the 2010 vintage. Under a new disguise, the 2011 Trujillo Cabernet was born. Sourced from the same amazing vineyards: Herb Lamb, Morisoli, Healy & Henry Brothers. Only 400 cases of this “Premiere” release were produced.

The aromatics are at first bright and focused, giving way to rich and vibrant dark fruit flavors. Blackberries, black cherry and currant roll forward on the palate followed by delicate hints of licorice, sweet tobacco and dark chocolate. A very slight mineral, almost slate, note quietly bolsters the complexity of the bouquet. In accordance with its refined character, the wine’s structure and acidity are well balanced for drinking now and entirely worthy of cellaring for many years.
Winemaker Side Bar: “My Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from the fruit of select, family-owned vineyards in Napa Valley, and I work closely with each grower, utilizing farming practices that yield notable fruit each year. Gary Morisoli, located just west of Rutherford, delivers bold, rich red and black fruit. Herb Lamb Vineyard, on Napa’s eastern slope, evokes black cherry and currants with bold spices and soft tannins. Healy Vineyard in St. Helena offers soft, silky mocha characters, and Henry Brothers Ranch, high on Howell Mountain, brings wonderfully dense and black fruit flavors with dark chocolate notes.”
