Syrah

Sangiovese - derives its name from the Latin Sanguis Jovis, "the Blood of Jupiter"

 

With at least fourteen Sangiovese clones existing,  Brunello is one of the most highly regarded of them all.

Broody red cheery and earthy notes, tobacco and mid-palate spice. As we age the wine in barrels, Sangiovese takes on wood and smoky spice notes that heighten the experience. High acidity and mid level tannins makes this unique varietal a very food friendly wine.

 

Food Pairings: Pairs well with Italian cuisine including tomato based pastas. Its drying finish will work hand in hand with oregano, basil, thyme and garlic. Sangiovese will also accompany stews, braised and roasted meats, and hard cheeses.

Our Syrah is the most versitile of the THV porfolio.

Scents and flavors include blackberries, plums, black cherries, spice, earth, blueberry, cassis, pepper and truffles. You will be greeted with a variety of flavors that taper off followed by a spicy peppery finish with soft tannins.

This chameleon varietal will change its profile depending on the herbs and spices you play with while cooking.

 

Food pairing: Our syrah is perfect for a wide and diverse array of wine and food pairings. Syrah is often the best wine for all types of roasted, grilled or smoked meat dishes including lamb, duck, beef, veal, sausage, grilled meats, barbecue and chicken dishes.

Merlot is one of our favorite varietals to grow in San Diego County due to the unique style for which it evolves into. Unlike the Merlot from up North, which can be big, fruity, and velvety, wines here in SDC incorporate the terroir and morph into a truer old world style of wine. Each sip brings the flavor of plums, cherries, blueberries and blackberries mixed with cocoa and black pepper tones, along with the earthy notes it gathers from our hills.

 

Food pairings: In general Merlot pairs well with chicken and other light meats as well as lightly-spiced dark meats and briskets. With medium tannin and not too much acidity, you’ll find Merlot pairs well with many foods.

The name Sauvignon Blanc loosely translates into “Wild White,” and wild it is.

Crisp, clean and fresh with hints of green apple, lemongrass, passion fruit and white peaches.

What we believe makes Trevi Hills Sauv Blanc unique is the hint of mineral notes that the natural granite sinks into the soil. Planting around large granite quarries gives this wine the wonderful mineral acids to drive this wine home.

 

Food: THV Sauvignon Blanc will pair beautifully with lemon chicken, tilapia, halibut, sea bass, mussels and most cheeses...or just a summer ponder while playing Bocce Ball.
