Tasting Notes and Description
Tasting Notes For Trefethen Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Our Cabernet Sauvignon vines are planted in the gravelly soils of our estate vineyard in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. These well-drained soils, combined with limited yields and our 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.
