Michael Schachner, December 31, 2012
“This full and ripe Cabernet has berry and black cherry aromas. Tannic, narrow and tough on the tongue, it is blasting with flavors of blackberry, mint and black coffee. It’s fruit flavor is met with plenty of kick and grab. Can age for a year.”

Trivento Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

90 points “Best Buy”– Wine Enthusiast
Michael Schachner, August 1, 2011
“A lusty value made right. The nose issues black cherry, cough drop and cassis aromas. It’s concentrated and balanced, while flavors of black cherry and cassis follow the nose. A mild tannic burn and chocolate on the finish tell you it’s good and can go with any meat, from burgers to a quality steak or roast.”

Trivento Reserve Malbec 2011

88 points “Best Values” – Wine Spectator
James Molesworth, August 31, 2012
“Racy, with precision to the raspberry and blackberry fruit that glides along the silky frame, with light tannins and juicy acidity driving the tangy finish. Drink now.”

“This is a solid, well-crafted and flavorful Malbec. Black fruit and cocoa aromas set up a concentrated palate, bearing chewy, dense flavors of black plum, wild berry and chocolate, plus toast and pepper notes.”

87 points – Wine Spectator
James Molesworth, November 15, 2011

Jay Miller, December, 2011
“The unoaked 2010 Malbec Reserva reveals aromas of spice box, flowers, cassis, and black cherry lead to a savory, ripe, forward Malbec that will provide enjoyment over the next 2-3 years.”

86 points “Best Buy” – Wine Enthusiast
Michael Schachner, August 1, 2012
“Fresh and reasonably fruity on the nose, but it’s also slightly gritty and tough. Shows medium weight and intensity in the mouth, with a medicinal red-berry flavor accented by spice and herb notes. It finishes dry and mildly oaky.”

Trivento Reserve Pinot Noir 2010

86 points “Best Buy”– Wine Enthusiast
Michael Schachner, August 1, 2011
“Cherry, sweet berry and citrus peel aromas come in front of a full, slightly oaky palate with sweet plum and berry flavors. There’s some length to the finish and more flavors of sweet, creamy but nicely applied oak.”

Trivento Reserve Syrah 2011

86 points – Wine Spectator
James Molesworth, August 31, 2012
“A jammy red, sporting a plummy mix of spice, game and black pepper, with a light herb note flickering on the finish. Drink now.”

Trivento Reserve Torrontés 2011

87 points “Best Buy”– Wine Enthusiast
Michael Schachner, October 1, 2012
“Clean and basic up front, with peach and white flower aromas. It feels juicy, with just enough body, bearing fruit salad flavors of nutmeg-dusted white grapes, apple and peach. It turns dry and almondy on the finish.”
