Producer Information

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.

Grapes

Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon

Production

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

Ripe plum, cherry, and red currant aromas are complemented by elegant undertones of bay leaf and cedar. An abundance of juicy red fruit flavours entices the palate with beautifully integrated layers of fresh herbs followed by cracked pepper and baking spice on the finish. Lush tannins and bright acidity make this a wine to enjoy now and for years to come.

Winery Chef Chris Kennedy pairs our Estate Merlot with duck, pheasant and grilled meats. The smokey, bold flavours these meats offer are characteristics this complex wine can stand up to. Chef suggests integrating clove or cracked black pepper in your dish to enhance the beautiful fresh spice notes in the wine.
