The word ‘trine’ (it rhymes with ‘wine’) is defined as a close group of three, and this wine pays homage to the families of Pepper Bridge: the McKibbens, Goffs, and Pellets. As with our Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Trine showcases the best of our Walla Walla Valley estate vineyards. However, it allows Winemaker Jean-François Pellet more freedom of expression since it is a creative blend rather than a varietal-based wine. Each vintage will contain a unique combination of Bordeaux’s traditional five red grapes.

Walla Walla Valley

Winemaker Notes

As Cabernet Franc takes the lead once more, bright red berries show off the energy and bright acidity in this blend. Notes of ripe raspberry, violet, and orange oil dance together toward a finish reminiscent of Herbs de Provence. The palate does not disappoint with lush red berries and raspberry compote. Fresh and flirtatious with integrated tannins, this blend is the perfect partner for countless food pairings.
