Video: Behind the Wine with Michael Trujillo

April 20, 2022

Written By Coravin

Coravin’s Lindsay Buck sits down with Michael Trujillo of Trujillo Wines to talk about his Cabernet Sauvignons available for purchase on the Coravin Wine Shop. The pair start by discussing what it takes to own and run a winery, specifically how Michael found his way there. In short, it was after having three decades of winemaking experience – i.e. vineyard cultivation, irrigation digging, cooperage selection, blending – under his belt that Michael decided to craft his namesake Cabernet Sauvignon.

Behind the Wine with Michael Trujillo

3 Trujillo Wines to try on the Coravin Wine Shop

We are lucky enough to offer three Trujillo Wine Cabernet Sauvignons on the Coravin Wine Shop. Learn more about each wine in the video and from the descriptions below and then share what you’re sipping on (using your Coravin wine by the glass system, of course) with us on social media, @coravin.

  • 2018 Trujillo Cabernet Sauvignon | Napa Valley: The 2018 Trujillo Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon expresses everything about the vintage. It has tremendous concentration and forward aromas of black cherry, black currant, and dark baker’s chocolate along with delightful hints of sweet cedar and subtle sweet clove..

  • 2017 Trujillo Gary Morisoli Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon |  Rutherford, Napa Valley: Straightway this Cabernet offers up its generous and seamless aromas of silky dark fruits, black cherry and cassis complemented with a sweet vanilla note with the subtle hints of earthiness signature to the Rutherford Bench region. It is rich, bold, and mouth-filling with lavish flavors of dusty, dark chocolate cherry and lush currants. This wine drinks beautifully now, but time in the bottle will be so rewarding. Drink between 2022 and 2035, enjoying it over time with Coravin Timeless.

  • 2017 Trujillo Henry Brothers Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon | Howell Mountain, Napa Valley: This select blend of 2017 Henry Brothers Reserve is an expression of not only the Howell Mountain AVA, but the artful and unique blending of the five Bordeaux varietals from a single site. This Cabernet blend delivers with authority amid its depth, density and complexity. Upon opening, this wine is still a bit cocooned and shy. With time and some air to relax it, this wine opens up with generous blackberry, sweet plum and black currant aromas with a touch of sweet vanilla and dark spices. Enjoyable now with generous decanting – try the Coravin Timeless Aerator into a red wine glass – but additional cellar time is recommended. Drink between 2022 and 2032.
