Being Welsh and a fan of Trefethen's Cabernet Sauvignon we're very pleased to see that Trefethen have a wine devoted to its roots. This is a very nice rounded wine with bold red fruit notes, blended using Malbec, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon and aged in French oak, this is a perfect example of a nice big Napa red that has won numerous high scores from critics.
THE RED DRAGON on the label of our Dragon's Tooth Napa Valley Red Wine originated in ancient British legend where two dragons—one red, one white—fight in the sky. The boy Merlin watches them with King Vortigern and when the red prevails, driving the white across the sea, the boy foretells the coming of King Arthur who will lead Vortigern's people, the Welsh, to victory over the invading Saxons.CATHERINE TREFETHEN,
our First Lady, was Welsh. Her loves for wine, gardens and family were the inspiration for our estate in Napa Valley's Oak Knoll District, and though she has departed, her spirit is still felt, especially in the cool foggy mornings when mist envelops the vineyard and our minds tend towards whimsical imaginings.
