I tasted the 2014 Trujillo and the 2013 and 2014 Madelynne yesterday. 2014 Trujillo was a beautiful wine that will need some waiting to develop into a wine that reminds me at this stage of the 2007 Karl Lawrence. The fruit is dark and there is some spice and a hint of cocoa. Excellent balance and mo...
The Trujillo tasting room is now open at 661 Main in St Helena. It is open from 10 to 5, and the tasting fee is $25 for all four wines in the current portfolio. They can accommodate 20 tastings per day by appointment and there is alot of parking around back. There are very comfortable seats in a roo...
I opened a bottle of the 2011 Trujillo which is 92% cab and 8% petite verdot and merlot. Immediately the room filled with aromas of dark fruit, spice, and a dusty cocoa.

I have no idea what the fruit sources will be but I doubt they will be the same. Mike is concentrating on his own label - Tr...
I've been drinking Dehlinger Pinot noir since 1990. For my palate, they seem to drink really well in the four to seven year window. There are exceptions (I am holding a 1997 Octagon) but this has worked well for us. I have not tsted the 2011s.
