Trefethen Dragon Tooth Red Blend 2017
The Red Dragon on the label of the Trefethen Dragon’s Tooth 2017, 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 2017 is incredibly enchanting. The nose features intense aromas of dark brambly fruit and layers of cinnamon, violet and vanilla. Balanced and supple on the palate, the finish is mouthwateringly smooth.
Enjoy the Dragon‘s Tooth with slow cooked peppers and tomatoes for the deep richness that complements this wine perfectly. He suggests pairing with leaner cuts of beef like flank or skirt steak. 54% Malbec, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot. 95 Points/Platinum, – Best Blended Bordeaux, Sommelier Challenge Int’l Wine & Spirits Competition, 92 Points James Suckling, 90 Points Wine Enthusiast.
