Cabernet Sauvignon (3 bottle set)
This box set will take you through the first three vintages (2013, 2014 and 2015) of Trois Noix Cabernet Sauvignon ever produced. Each one with its own distinct personality, but all clearly related in their elegance, balance and delicious layers of flavor.
Trois Noix was born out of a lifelong love of wine - not only what ends up in the bottle, but also how it got there, what happens when it fills your glass, and how it can bring a table to life and people together. The magic of wine - from making it to sharing it - is as a conduit to connection.
The Trois Noix wines are made in collaboration with winemakers including Françoise Peschon, Nigel Kinsman and Matt Elkins. Together we sleuth out compelling wines and grapes that might otherwise go neglected. These components then begin their own collaboration as we assemble the blends for the final wines. While we love to push the boundaries of convention - our palates still have a classical bent. Our mantra is serious wines that are enjoyable and pleasurable right now: elegant, polished, and approachable but with structure to last.
After more than half my life spent in the UK and France, I returned to the USA in 2016 to become a partner in my family’s new wine venture. Although I was (and am) thrilled to be part of the family business, I felt that if I was going to return to California - to the Napa wine world - I was also going to need to have something of my own - a project that could reflect my personality and what I loved most about wine: people and community. My brother Greg helped to get this new venture started, and we named it after our three collective children (three “peanuts”). As the vision of Trois Noix started becoming reality, we changed gears amicably and I took the helm of this new wine venture on my own. So now when people ask me if I’m a little bit nuts, I can honestly reply, “you have no idea…..“!
The other amazing people who help to make Trois Noix live and sing include Stefan Copiz, the intensely talented designer and artist who created the graphic identity of the bottles and labels. Our amazing staff at Wheeler Farms are also there to support the wines and share them with our visitors: Tyler, Patrick and Sarah are all incredible ambassadors for Trois Noix. Just like children, wine takes a village!
