In the glass, this classic Napa Cab has a deep ruby center with BRIGHT purple edges and a thin translucent halo….
When I stick my nose in the glass, I’m buried by a dump truck load of cedar sawdust ——————> Another sniff brings out raspberry and black licorice notes that only compliment the original cedar blast….
A sip unleashes a blueberry and black cherry start that dances into a room full of dark chocolate and anise…. The mid-palate shows a bit of tightness with more of the cedar that I got on the nose before a spicy black pepper and dark fruit ending….
Trefethen Family Vineyards is one of the O.G’s when it comes to Napa wine…. If you’re a Cab lover, this classic checks all the right boxes! At 5 years old, it could use a short decant or a couple more years in bottle but if you’re looking for an iconic Napa Cab that doesn’t break the bank, here you go!!!
