2019 Trefethen Cabernet Sauvignon Oak Knoll District
Holy high-scores, Batman. A 97-Point Oak Knoll Cabernet Sauvignon is always the right call to elevate your evening – but you don’t always want to uncork a full-sized bottle for a little one on one indulgence. Ripe red fruit, black pepper and anise beckon towards dried flowers, currants, and blackberries. The full-bodied palate, polished tannins, and lengthy finish will continue to develop over the next decade, but there’s no need to delay your gratification with this half-bottle of full-flavor.
Dark, sleek cassis fruit, ripe and layered, with notes of tobacco leaf, coffee bean, mocha and dried violet. Pretty, floral palate with a slightly smoky character. Ripe tannins, refreshing acidity and lovely eucalyptus and menthol on the lingering finish. A great example of the power and freshness of Cabernet Sauvignon. Plenty of time ahead. Blend : 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec
