This must be near its peak. The current release of Trésor is big and rowdy, but this is smooth and mellow.

Exceptionally well balanced blend, elegant, but lively. An uber Meritage.

The 2012 vintage of Trésor is deceptively easy to love. Medium garnet with an elegant, round bouquet of black fruit, violets and forest floor, the tannins are so ripe and silky the wine feels complete today. It will gain depth with time but the fruit is so well integrated and lush it will be hard to put this wine away for long. Cocoa, blueberry, bramble and more all in perfect balance, held together by restrained oak. A beautiful example of an elegant Meritage blend.

Blueberry pie on the nose with more ripe blueberry on the palate. Full bodied with soft tannins.

Very nice for a blend. Tastes like a pure Cabernet.

Ferrari has a special place in my heart. It's the first winery I ever visited. The winery is beautiful, the juice is good and reliable, and it can be found at a good value. The 2012 Trésor is terrific. Lots of fruit and spicecake on the nose. The wine is full of blackberries, clove, and Christmas spice, with a lovely hint of mocha. Silky smooth and supple. My only gripe is the price. But I stole this for $32 this weekend. And I did not feel bad about it, given how much $$ I dropped. Must get more.

Great wine. A good blend from Sonoma County, CA. I enjoyed it with or without food.
