Taken Wine Company

Running three generations deep, the Trinchero family has been neck deep in Napa Valley for some time now.

But the torch has, at last, been passed. Or, rather, taken.

Carlo Trinchero’s endeavor into the world of wine making has resulted in the Taken Wine Company. Since the launch of its first Cabernet Sauvignon in 2010, Taken has established itself as a timeless, fun-spirited adventure in wine making.

2011 “Complicated” Red Wine

Instantly appealing on the palate, the 2011 Complicated offers surprising complexity. Finely grained tannins and a mid-palate sweet spot result in a very soft, velvety mouthfeel. Ripe, rich black cherry and well-integrated French oak yield to a seductively long finish.

2010 “Taken” Red Wine

Velvety-smooth upon entry, the 2010 Taken reveals both elegance and power. Layers of ripe black fruit, graphite and licorice flavors lead into soft tannins. This is a classic 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet blend that is approachable upon release and should continue to age nicely for 5-10 years.
