Two Notes Cabernet Sauvignon
WHY WE LOVE IT
- Ted Nash and Kristen Lee Sergeant met as musicians, and also bonded through a mutual passion for wine.
- Two Notes is a wine deeply connected to Happy Canyon AVA and the Santa Barbara wine community, fusing old world technique and new world panache.
- 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.’
Varietal Composition: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12.5% Cabernet Franc, 12.5% Merlot
Elaboration: Cabernet from Happy Canyon has a special signature — a sagey, herbaceous freshness that leads more with elegance than with power. Two Notes maximizes that Bordelaise leaning profile by blending in Cabernet Franc for texture and aromatics, and Merlot for a touch more ripe, dark fruit.
Tasting Notes: This wine has fresh red and black fruits, a whisper of herbs and a brush of tannin on the finish.
Kristen Lee Sergeant and Grammy award-winning jazz composer/saxophonist Ted Nash 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.’
