How many notes does it take to make great music? In the case of excellent wine, it just takes two – or maybe three.
Two Notes is the creative partnership of singer/songwriter Kristen Lee Sergeant and Grammy award-winning jazz composer/saxophonist Ted Nash. They met in the world of music but soon discovered that they shared another passion – the world of fine wine.
Creative people often pursue multiple outlets for their genius, so it seemed natural for the duo to create a wine that perfectly captures the spirit of their music.
In collaboration with a talented winemaker who shares their vision, they produce their medley in Happy Canyon, Santa Barbara, California. Happy Canyon, with its warmer microclimate, is perfect for growing Rhone and Bordeaux varietals. The result is a blend called Triola, a musical term for a triplet (when three notes essentially make one in rhythm). The three notes in Triola are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc – a harmonic creation that crosses musical genres and has been referred to as ‘restrained and elegant.’
