*Must be ordered by 3/8 at midnight to arrive on time via ground shipping
Join our Proprietor, Garrett Busch, and Cellar Pass Co-Founder, Sarah Ellman, for an unforgettable Easter themed virtual tasting that will debut our new wine Two Popes! Trinitas Two Popes is a special blend celebrating something that hasn’t happened in over half a millennia – two living Bishops of Rome, the head of Catholic Church. Inspired by the Busch family, the blend refers to Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.
The tasting kit contains one bottle of our 2018 Two Popes, 2018 Rose, and 2015 Meritage. Two Popes contains 75% Cabernet Franc from the Pelkan Ranch Vineyard in Knights Valley, and 25% Zinfandel from the Biama Vineyard in El Dorado. These varietals and vineyard sites were used to create our Trinitas wines made in honor of each Pope’s respective elections – Cabernet FRANCis in 2013 and ratZINger, referring to Benedict’s birth name, in 2005.
Trinitas founders Tim and Steph Busch have personally presented both Popes with their honorary wines. They look forward to sharing this latest homage to the Holy Fathers at an upcoming papal audience. Here’s hoping Pope Francis and Pope Benedict think Two Popes is divine!
With less than 80 cases available, the 2018 Two Popes this is a very limited production wine, and will only be available to all of our customers through March 31st. Beginning April 1st, the wine will be reserved exclusively for our Wine Society members. Don't miss this chance to celebrate Easter with your Trinitas family and try this sacred new wine!
2018 Two Popes, North Coast, Family Collection
Our inaugural release of Two Popes opens with powerful aromas of chocolate, nutmeg, ripe plum and sarsaparilla. The palate follows suit, with rich and concentrated flavors of ripe plum, blueberry, dark chocolate, vanilla, mocha, and pepper, that trail off into a very persistent finish marked by blackberry and graham cracker. Everything is lifted by fresh acidity and ripe tannins, that give the wine a charming and approachable spirit.
2018 Rose, California
Cranberry, salted watermelon rind, and strawberry blossom make up the lovely bouquet of our 2018 Rose. The full-bodied palate treats you to lively red berry fruit and rose petals. Gold Medal, International Rose Wine Competition
2015 Meritage, Napa Valley
This rich and approachable rendition of Meritage puts the overt characteristics of the 2015 vintage on full display. It opens with a sweet bouquet of plum, blueberry, graphite, and cedar. The silky palate gushes with flavors of ripe blueberry and black currant that seamlessly transition into a savory finish of toasted vanilla graham cracker. Despite its decadence, this wine stays fresh, and is incredibly easy to drink. This is ready to enjoy now!
