Treana is the sum of elements that influence our wines; the land that our family farms, the warm California sun that nurtures, and the cooling ocean breeze that balances. These elements combine to create the perfect growing conditions for our grapes.
The 2017 vintage began with reasonable weather throughout bloom and set. During the sizing phase, we experienced very warm weather that affected berry growth on many varietals. In mid-September, while harvest slowed due to moderate temperatures, the prolonged ripening period maintained vine balance and higher fruit quality. Overall, the 2017 vintage delivered yields slightly below normal while upholding our desired fruit characteristics & quality.
After harvest, vineyard lots were fermented individually in stainless-steel tanks for 14 to 20 days. Carefully managed pump overs and extended macerations enhanced the extraction of color and tannin. The varietals were aged separately for 20 months in French oak barrels, 50% of which were new or once used. The initial blend was assembled in early summer of 2019 and barrel-aged an additional two months. The wine was racked only twice during its cellar life, with the final racking occurring just prior to bottling.
The Treana Red stands as one of our flagship that sets the stage with power and finesse. This beautifully deep burgundy colored wine displays aromas of cassis that lead into flavors of vanilla bean, dense black berry and baking spices. Layered tannins frame
