Trefethen Cabernet Savignon Napa Oak Knoll 2013
A classic vintage for the Napa Valley, the 2012 growing season was characterized by warm days and cool nights. In our vineyards in the Oak Knoll District, a dry and warm spring provided the vines with a strong start and the summer was generally mild with most days getting up into the 80’s and many nights as low as the 40’s. The early start to the season was tempered by a slightly cooler than average autumn resulting in typical harvest dates for all varieties–and grapes and wines of exceptional quality. Vibrant and deep ruby in color. The nose offers enticing aromas of blackberries, black cherries and currants; while the oak adds clove, cedar and toffee notes. The palate is greeted by fine tannins and finishes round and silky. Balanced and drinkable now, but also an excellent addition to the collector's cellar.
