Wine Company Spotlight: Taken Wine Co.

 

 

On August 13, Trinchero Family Estates announced that it has added the Taken Wine Company brands to its growing portfolio. The current releases include the halo brand 2010 Taken Red Wine, the 2011 Complicated Red Blend, and the 2012 Complicated Chardonnay.

Co-owners and winemakers, Carlo Trinchero and Josh Phelps, both grew up in the business. Carlo Trinchero is a third generation member of the Trinchero Family, Napa Valley vintners since 1948 who changed the way Americans drink wine when they created Sutter Home White Zinfandel in the early 1970s. Josh Phelps also has roots in the business, the son of well-regarded wine maker Chris Phelps, who spent his career in the wine industry creating award-winning wines in Napa and Bordeaux.

Childhood comrades, Trinchero and Phelps created Taken Wine Company with the philosophy “to craft great wines to share with our friends.” The name was originally chosen when they were having difficulty finding a moniker for their wines that wasn’t already “taken.” They released their first wine under the Taken label in 2010, and the brand has continued to evolve. The idea for the Complicated and Available brands spun from the popularity of social media-created relationship status updates. Telling their story digitally, Taken Wine Company’s interactive, social media driven website taps into ways millennials consume and share information.

The 2010 Taken Red Blend is a Napa-appellated blend of Cabernet (60%) and Merlot (40%), and retails for $30. The 2011 Complicated Red Blend from California’s Central Coast is comprised of 50% Syrah, 43% Grenache, 7% Carignane, and retails for $20. The 2012 Complicated Chardonnay is 100% Sonoma Valley Chardonnay and sells for $18. The Available won’t be “available” until spring.

 
2010red

 

Velvety-smooth upon entry, the 2010 Taken reveals both elegance and power. Layers of ripe black fruit, graphite and licorice flavors lead into soft tannins. This is a classic 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet blend that is approachable upon release and should continue to age nicely for 5-10 years.

Look: Dark garnet red with purple hue.

Nose: Opulent, yet refined aromas of mocha, blackberry and black cherry with hints of spice and caramelized oak.

Varietal: 60% Cabernet, 40% Merlot

Appellation: Napa Valley, CA

Aged in French Oak Barrels

Alcohol
: 14.5%

 

 

2011complicated

Instantly appealing on the palate, the 2011 Complicated offers surprising complexity. Finely grained tannins and a mid-palate sweet spot result in a very soft, velvety mouthfeel. Ripe, rich black cherry and well-integrated French oak yield to a seductively long finish.

Look: Color is medium-dark burgundy.

Nose: Aromas of black fruits, smoky game, dusty cocoa powder and espresso are interwoven into layers of aromatics.

Varietal: 50% Syrah, 43% Grenache, 7% Carignane

Appellation: Central Coast, CA

Aged in French Oak Barrels

Alcohol: 14.3%

 

 

2012chardonnay

Taste: Bright stone fruit flavors showcase a classic Sonoma chardonnay. Fresh, yet balanced acidity supports the luscious mouth feel. Lingering lemon-lime zest, guava and peach notes continue throughout the long finish.

Look: Straw colored with a rich golden hue.

Nose: Aromas of Meyer lemon peel and quince with subtle hints of oak and spice.

Varietal: 100% Chardonnay

Appellation: Sonoma County, CA

Enhanced with French Oak

Alcohol: 13.9%

Product Spotlight: Ménage à Trois Moscato

 

Not to brag, but we know a thing or two about seduction. If you want to improve your odds with your sweetie, we recommend skipping the poetry and flowers and going straight for the Ménage à Trois. A little direct, we know, but it never fails. Our Moscato is a sexy sweetie in its own right, with lip-smacking flavors and irresistible floral aromas that have been known to elicit sighs of pure pleasure. Whoever said romance was dead surely never tasted this Moscato.

 

Vineyard and Winemaking

This naughty, but oh-so-nice, Ménage à Trois Moscato is a delightful blend created by a trio of pleasure-seekers masquerading as winemakers. (Clearly they know how to please the palate, because after just one sip, we’re under Moscato’s spell.) Made from premium grapes sourced from three distinct growing regions in California, this wine begins its seduction with lush, alluring floral aromas, followed by luscious peach and apricot flavors that yield to a refreshing finish. Our Moscato’s sweet, fruity flavors are not permitted to run completely wanton, but instead are tempered by a clean, crisp acidity thanks to our commitment to a 100% non-malolactic process. We up the ante with cap and draining to boost intensity, and cold fermentation to preserve the delicate fragrances that make this varietal so appealing. Life is sweet indeed!

 

Tasting Notes

Our Moscato blends wines from three different growing areas, each crafted by a different winemaker. Lovely floral aromas and luscious peach/apricot flavors make it the perfect Mènage à Trois!

 

About the Company
You’re in the right place. When it comes to wine, we believe the more the merrier, so we’re delighted to invite you to indulge in an experience like no other. Our winemakers play matchmaker, bringing together ripe, luscious flavors, alluring aromas, and sensual textures to create our collection of fun, flirtatious wines. Try one, or try them all—each is a most delicious dalliance.

About the Company
It’s time to change the way you look at wine. It’s also time — finally — for a wine that caters to those who are not wine snobs.

Whether a classically trained sommelier or a novice in the wine world, we’ve all had this experience before.

You walk into a supermarket, liquor store, or wine shop and gawk at hundreds (even thousands) of bottles there in front of you. So, which wine do you choose? Do you choose based on country or varietal (type of wine)? Do you pick a color, cover your eyes, and randomly select a bottle? Perhaps you attempt to match the type of wine with your meal. Or, do you simply go with the same bottle you’ve been buying for years because you’re afraid to try something new? You might even pull out your smartphone to quickly search the Internet for recommended bottles in your price range.
No More!

Wines For Dummies takes the headache out of choosing a wine that fits your needs. If you already know what you’re having for dinner, check the back of our labels for suggestions on what pairs well with each varietal. If you’re looking for a certain flavor, check the back label for a plain English explanation of what to expect inside the bottle. And, if you’re struggling to pronounce the name on one of our wines, no worries! All of our wines include a phonetic pronunciation on the front label.

We want you to enjoy wine, regardless of experience or budget. So, say no to anxiety, complications, and fancy language. It’s time that you spend less energy worrying about which wine to get and more energy enjoying the wines you’ll love.
