Trefethen Vineyards is world famous for their extraordinary estate Cabernet from their vineyard in the Oak Knoll region of Napa Valley. Much like a second label Bordeaux, The Double T label was launched to use the estate fruit that doesn't make it into the main bottling. Grapes for this Double T Red come from the very same estate vineyard but some from the young vines and some are blending varietals that they have more of than they need, but all of it is prime thanks to their exceptional location at the cool end of Napa Valley, and the outstanding vintage. This blend is 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Malbec, 20% Petit Verdot, 18% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc. All of the lots are vinified separately and the wine aged 15 months in 15 months in 38% French 32% American
30% Hungarian. Malbec brings plush fruit characters and a hint of floral with Cabernet Sauvignon providing the backbone, Merlot adds a lively spice and herbal character. Cabernet Franc provides finesse and a peppery perfume and Petit Verdot adds color and structure. An all-time favorite Napa Valley red that we have a hard time keeping in stock. Don't miss it!!!
