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.

2010. Hoped for a bit more with this one. Incredibly dark, almost black in the glass. Loaded with blackberry and currant, but has a bit of astringency that throws everything off just a little.

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.

Right at it's peak. Fruit still present but tannins are fine and dusty.

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

10 years old and this has picked up a lot of complexity. Heavy eucalyptus, loam, green pepper. Great with a steak.
