About Trefethen 2019 Eshcol Red Blend, Napa Valley
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, Eshcol (previously known as "Double T")rounds out the Trefethen portfolio as an introduction to their estate grown and sustainably produced wines. Crafted for those looking for Napa Valley quality in an accessible wine, Eshcol delivers an incredible value.
Sourced entirely from their Main Ranch vineyard, winemaker Bryan Kays crafts a unique blend each year. This 2019 is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec and 1% Cabernet Franc. The wine was aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels 13% new.
The wine opens with bold fruit-forward aromas of blackberry and dried cherry. On the palate, bright red fruit flavors give way to modest tannins and balanced acidity, making it very food-friendly and ready to pair with casual dinners at home.
