The perfect balance of fruit and tannins make this wine perfect for aging.
The Trefethen Dragon's Tooth Red Blend 2019 is the result of a rollercoaster growing season that started with a wet dormant season and cool and rainy May. The summer months alternated between warmer and cooler than average, but the daily high temperatures rarely exceeded 100°F. Thankfully, September was warm and sunny, providing the perfect finish, and all the grapes were in by mid-October. This growing season produced grapes that were bursting with flavor, making the 2019 vintage an exceptional year for Dragon's Tooth Red Blend.
To complement the bold flavor of the wine, Winery Chef Chris Kennedy recommends pairing Dragon's Tooth with Four Cheese Ravioli with Smoked Ham and Greens. The smoky flavor of the ham highlights the dark fruit notes of the wine, while the greens complement its peppery notes. The complex richness of the cheese cuts nicely through the tannins on the finish, making it the perfect pairing for a special occasion or a cozy evening in.
