Trefethen 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, Oak Knoll District, Napa Valley
Trefethen Estate winery is one of the few in Napa Valley that's 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 Trefethen's presence there. Just south of Yountville and Stag's Leap, Oak Knoll is one of the coolest regions in the Valley. The Cabernet ripens slowly over an extended season developing complex flavors. This 2013 ia a blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Merlot all sourced from their Main Ranch Estate Vineyard. The wine aged 18 months in 60% French, 28% American, 12% Hungarian oak. A Platinum Award winner at the 2016 Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition. James Suckling scored this 93 points saying "Classic producer makes a beautiful red. Bright aromas of blueberries, raspberries and black licorice. Full-bodied, firm and silky. Wet earth, bark and mineral undertones. Fantastic now but better in 2018." and Wine Review Online scored it 95 points saying "Top producer, long history of classic wine, definer of regional characteristics, signature variety -- put them all together and it equals a high score, right? Certainly not always, but in this case the answer is an unqualified yes. This is a classic Napa Valley wine, showing once again Trefethen's mastery with Cabernet. The house style is all about balancing the elements of blackberry an black currant fruit, dried herbs, soft oak spice, supple tannins and racy acidity into a wine structured for aging. I'm always amazed when I pull a ten year or older Trefethen out of the cellar -- they turn out beautifully every time. Contains 4% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec."
