Ranked #19 in Wine Enthusiast’s Top 100 Wines of 2023


Trésor is an elegant, full-bodied wine with rich texture and layers of flavor. Aromas of wild berries, cola and caramel lead to silky plum, mocha and vanilla flavors. Notes of cedar and black cassis glide across the palate in a long and expressive finish. This wine is delicious now and will drink well for 7-10 years.


Trésor complements lamb and beef that is roasted or braised. Pair with beef stew, filet mignon, a maple bacon cheeseburger, grilled flank or sirloin steak. Try Trésor with strong-flavored cheeses like Gorgonzola or sharp Cheddar.


Upon entering the winery, the hand-harvested grapes are sorted, destemmed and then cold soaked for 3 days. Following the cold soak, yeast is added and pump overs commence, one to two times daily, for the duration of primary fermentation. The wine is drained and pressed, then moved to barrels for malolactic fermentation, remaining in individual lots until blending and bottling. The wine completes a total of 20 months barrel aging in wine caves, allowing for the perfect balance of fruit, tannin and oak.


Although we experienced an unusually rainy period in April, drought conditions in Sonoma county continued in 2021, with most of the annual precipitation landing in October and December, 2020. Spring temperatures were cooler, with bud break occurring one week later than average, while summer temperatures were above average with less nightly fog and cloud cover. With minimal irrigation, the grapes were ready for harvesting near the average pick dates for Bordeaux varieties.
