90 points Trenza 2009 Tinto (San Luis Obispo County);
Smooth, lush and dense with deep plum, blackberry and spice; supple, ripe and juicy with lovely fruit, texture and length; impressive. -- Anthony Dias Blue, The Tasting Panel Magazine
94 points Trenza 2009 Blanco (Edna Valley);
Trenza's Blanco is a shining example of the potential for unusual grape varieties to do well in many of California's cool, coastal appellations. The grapes are unusual only in the sense that traditionally they have not been widely planted, if planted at all, in this country. This is a 50-50 blend of Albariño (the delicious white from the Rias Baixas district of Galicia in western Spain) and Grenache Blanc, a staple of the white wines of the southern Rhone Valley of France. The Albariño provides the zing, the Grenache Blanc the heft. It's a lovely combo that shows aromas of red citrus, such as tangerine, and crisp pear. There is a flinty, edgy minerality throughout. I absolutely loved it. -- Robert Whitley, Wine Review Online.
