Trefethen Dragon Tooth Red Blend 2018
The Red Dragon on the label of the Trefethen Dragon’s Tooth 2018, Napa Valley Red Wine originated in ancient British legend where two dragons—one red, one white—fight in the sky. The boy Merlin watches them with King Vortigern and when the red prevails, driving the white across the sea, the boy foretells the coming of King Arthur who will lead Vortigern’s people, the Welsh, to victory over the invading Saxons.
Rich, yet fresh and bright, the Trefethen Dragon Tooth Red Blend 2018 is incredibly enchanting. This wine opens with expressive aromas of cherry and blackberry accented with notes of fig, tobacco leaf, and sarsaparilla. Full-bodied and balanced, the integrated flavors of ripe dark fruit lead to a lush and abundant finish.
Enjoy the Dragon‘s Tooth with slow cooked peppers and tomatoes for the deep richness that complements this wine perfectly. We suggest pairing with leaner cuts of beef like flank or skirt steak. 49% Malbec, 27% Petit Verdot, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon. 94 Points James Suckling – “A rich, round red with plum, berry, chocolate and walnut character. Lots of cherry flavors. It’s full-bodied with round tannins and a delicious finish.”
