2013 Trinoro "Le Cupole" Toscana (Previously $30) Top Pick!
2013 Trinoro "Le Cupole" Toscana (Previously $30)

91 points Vinous: "The 2013 Le Cupole di Trinoro hits the palate with racy dark cherries, mocha, plums, espresso and new leather. Radiant and deeply expressive, the 2013 is a great introduction to the Tenuta di Trinoro wines. Cherry compote and cinnamon are some of the notes that shape the super-ripe, opulent finish. Le Cupole is the second selection of fruit and barrels that don't make it into the top wines. It also happens to be a terrific value. (AG)" (3/2016)

2015 Field Recordings "Franc" Paso Robles Cabernet Franc

Meanwhile, he was building friendships with some great California growers, who'd often offer him small lots of their best grapes on the side. From these beginnings he has built a catalog of delicious, affordable wines that hum with personality.
