2018 Fairest Creature 'Triniceros' Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1.5L
Michel Rolland blends Fairest Creature's flagship magnum wine, Triniceros, by picking the best barrel selection from each of our three renowned winemakers. It is only available in oversized formats and is extremely limited in production. Triniceros is derived from the Latin roots trini (three) and ceros (horns) and symbolizes the three virtuosos behind the wine. The image of Triniceros is derived from a mythical beast named Qilin in Chinese culture. This hybrid creature has the head of a dragon, the body of a tiger or dear and an ox's tail.
Lastly, there are a tiny 532 magnums of the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Triniceros, a blend put together by famed consultant Michel Rolland. It's possibly closest in style to the Plyspline release and has incredible dark fruits (cassis, currants) as well as notes of graphite, toasted spice, chocolate, white flowers, and lead pencil shavings. A wine that builds incrementally on the palate, it has ripe, velvety tannins, an expansive texture, fabulous mid-palate depth, and the balance and class to drink well today yet also evolve for 20-30 years.
