Our Hillside block has sparse, gravely, volcanic soil that ensures low vigor, low yield, and small, concentrated berries. This classic dark ruby red Cabernet Sauvignon boasts aromas of violet, cassis, plum, and black cherry wrapped in an oak bouquet of toasty vanilla, mocha, caramel, and nutmeg. Rich and well-rounded luscious flavors of black cherry and berry combine with supple tannin on a lingering finish. Pair with braised lamb shanks, beef short ribs or sirloin, and cheeseboard selection of aged cheddar or gouda.
Trestle Glen Vineyards is named after the narrow gauge railroad constructed through Sonoma Valley in 1882 that connected the town of Sonoma to Glen Ellen. Remains of the original train trestle that crossed Sonoma Creek can still be found on the vineyard property. This wine captures the rich history of America’s early railroad expansion.
