Trinity is new wine from Chatham Hill made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. All the grapes from this traditional French-style blend are from one vineyard in NC’s Yakdkin Valley. The wine has a rich, deep purple color with nose that feels like a Cage Death Match between the big black fruit and the big green pepper. Upon tasting the wine, it is the green pepper side of the Cabernet Franc that wins out. This is a dry and savory red, unlike any we have tasted made in North Carolina. It has a crisp acidity and tart finish. We look forward to trying this wine with food. (Wine provided by the winery for our review)

About Chatham Hill Winery (from the winery):
Chatham Hill Winery was established in 1999 as the first winery in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area and the first Urban Winery in North Carolina. Its mission is to produce distinctive, handcrafted wines of high quality and purity from grapes grown in North Carolina. Majority of Chatham Hill wines including Chardonnay, Viognier, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc are handcrafted from the best quality Yadkin Valley AVA grapes produced by our grower partners.
At Chatham Hill we believe in a minimalist approach to winemaking. Our wines are produced using traditional methods. Although we only try to help Mother Nature in turning grapes into wine, we use the highest quality materials and meticulously sterilized equipment. We emphasize the scientific approach in controlling the conditions under which the grapes are fermented and wines are aged, blended, and bottled. We believe the combination of our winemaking skills and philosophy will yield a premium wine, a goal to which we are passionately committed.
