Trefethen Cabernet Sauvignon 2018/2019
Trefethen Cabernet Sauvignon 2018/2019 vines are planted in the gravelly soils of the estate vineyard in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. These well-drained soils, combined with limited yields and moderate climate, produce Cabernet Sauvignon fruit with complex flavors and a special brightness on the palate.
Ripe, focused flavors of cherry, boysenberry, and blackcurrant are complemented by soft notes of cedar, bay leaf, and a savory earthiness. On the palate, this wine has a fruit-driven entry balanced with firm tannins that give way to a lush, lingering finish. This wine shines with red meats and copious amounts of thyme and black pepper. Chef Chris Kennedy recommends using them to marinate a filet of beef, in a hearty beef stew. or to finish a red wine sauce. Not a big red meat eater? One of his other favorite go-to dishes for this wine is ahi tuna crusted in black pepper. 92 Points James Suckling, Best in Show – Decanter World Wine Awards
