Trefethen Double T Napa Valley Red Blend

Trefethen Double T Napa Valley Red Blend

Eugene Trefethen and his wife Catherine purchased 600 acres in 1968 to create Trefethen Vineyards. At the time, there were fewer than 20 wineries in Napa Valley which put the Trefethens in a small group of wine families dedicated to a vision of crafting world class wines from Napa Valley. Their son, John, and his wife, Janet, were the driving force in turning the estate into a working winery. John led production and Janet travelled the globe promoting Trefethen wines; giving her very deep rooted connections in the UK. Their first wine was released in 1973. At the 1979 Gault Millau World Wine Olympics, their 1976 Chardonnay earned “Best Chardonnay in the World" honours. 

Often referred to as the sweet spot of Napa Valley, Trefethen's two estate vineyards are located in the Oak Knoll District- known for the largest range of individual microclimates within an appellation thus allowing Trefethen to grow a diverse range of varietals.  Rich fruit, crafted in an elegant, age-worthy manner are the hallmarks of the Trefethen style.  The third generation is now active with Loren and Hailey poised to put their generation's stamp on the Trefethen credo of 'One Family, One Estate, One Passion.'

Tasting Notes

Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot provide the backbone for this lovely blend. Malbec brings colour, red fruit characters and a hint of floral. Merlot adds a lively spice and herbal character with Cabernet Franc offering finesse and a peppery perfume. Aromas of lush, summer blackberries, brambly cassis, complemented by white pepper, clove, and baking spices are framed by sweet vanilla oak. Juicy, ripe, black cherry and blackberry flavours excite the palate, and the wine finishes long, wrapped in cedar, cinnamon, and clove.

This wonderfully versatile red wine is a perfect counterpart to savoury Italian cuisine with a bold red sauce, like pizza or pasta. Its full palate will also stand up nicely to lean red meats or fresh herb risotto with roasted mushrooms.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
