Fresh is our goal. Making Zinfandel in a way that is obvious in its spice and red fruits but with an alcohol that makes it easy to have two glasses. Fresh black cherry fruit aromas with black pepper accents. Shows juicy blackberry, blueberry, and raspberry flavors. Beautiful depth and concentration with soft and supple finegrain tannins. Finishes with a touch of mocha. Drink now or over the next 10 years.
Trig Point is produced by Nick Goldschmidt and his wife Yolyn. After flying the globe for many years as the head-winemaker for the likes of Simi, Allied Domecq, and Beam Estates, Nick decided to start a family company with his wife Yolyn in 1998. The goal of the company was to focus on site specific winemaking from great vineyard sites from around the world. Having produced so many world class wines from around the globe, Nick knew exactly from which vineyard sites he would choose to make his wines.The wines Nick and Yolyn Goldschmidt produce are all single vineyard, handcrafted, small production, artisan wines.VINEYARDSThe Trig Point Vineyard sits on a bench land site in the Alexander Valley facing southeast in a beautiful bowl. This unique topography protects the vineyard from the wind. The early morning fog and deep gravelly loam soils are ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. I have worked with this vineyard many years, as it was the predominate vineyard for the Simi Cabernet Reserve program from 1980 - 1997. Indeed, one of the great uncompromising vineyards of the Alexander Valley and certainly a "trig point" for growing classy Bordeaux varietals.
