A family owned winery producing wines from vineyards in Sonoma County. Started in 1994 by John and Cathy Vicini who initially sold their own Russian River Valley grapes. By 1999 they had started their own label, Trecini, representing the three Vicinis (John, Cathy and their son David). Five varietals are offered including Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Zinfandel.
The winemaker is veteran Dan Barwick.
A tasting room is open Mon-Fri in downtown Santa Rosa at 441 Beaver Street. The wines are available through the online store.

2008 Trecini Vicini Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
13.6% alc., $35. Clones 777 and 828. Frost reduced yields to 3/4 ton per acre. Aged in new and minimally used French Burgundy oak barrels for 11 months. · Opens slowly in the glass to reveal appealing aromas of ripe strawberries, grape must, sandalwood and pine pitch. Discreetly concentrated wave of pretty black cherry and berry fruit underlain with flavors of cola, baking spice and oak, wrapped in mild unresolved tannins and offering a soft mouthfeel. There is an appealing freshness to the fruit here. Typical Russian River Valley offering. I found it at Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa for $24. Good (+). Reviewed March 2, 2011 ARTICLE »
