About Our Ratings

Trefethen 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, Oak Knoll District, Napa Valley
Trefethen Estate winery is one of the few in Napa Valley thatís never bought any grapes. All of their wines are produced with grapes sourced from their estate vineyards, mostly the 61 vineyard blocks that make up their Main Ranch. The establishment of the Oak Knoll District AVA in 2004 is in large part due to Trefethenís presence there. Just south of Yountville and Stagís Leap, Oak Knoll is one of the coolest regions in the Valley. The Cabernet ripens slowly over an extended season developing complex flavors.This 2012 ia a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Malbec and 4% Merlot all sourced from their Main Ranch Estate Vineyard. The wine aged 18 months in 58% French, 34% American and 8% Hungarian oak. This wine has already won high praise starting with a 95 point Platinum Medal at the San Diego International Wine Competition. It also received 95 points in the Critics Challenge International Wine Competition and it scored 96 points from Wine Review Online. They said "This vintage of Trefethen's estate Cabernet is a stunning example of the winery's prowess over the past four decades. It has everything, and everything is in balance, making it a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon of uncommon harmony. On the nose this vintage exhibits aromas of ripe cassis and wood-spice. On the palate it is seamless and inviting, with layers of rich dark fruits, silky tannins and a lasting finish." On Sale!!

Very fine now, but perhaps I should have waited ?
The wine has lovely color, and a very fine, rich cabernet nose. Dark fruits appear on first contact, and there is a pleasing, lasting finish. (still on my tongue as I write this) I certainly can recommend this wine, but I wonder whether it might develop richer tannins over time. It is just 3 years old.

very good wine especially at this price point
Almost as good as the much more expensive caymus. but as I said very good and reasonably priced.

A very balanced wine
This was a wine which needs a bit of time to breathe, but it is a very pleasing, very integrated, and exceedingly drinkable wine.

Did not live up to it's rating. Bought two bottles and one will let sit in wine cellar. For the money would recommend Jordan Cab.
