Eshcol Red, Trefethen Family Vineyards, Napa 2019

Trefethen Estate


Eshcol rounds out the Trefethen portfolio as an introduction to Trefethen's estate grown and sustainably produced wines. Crafted for those looking for Napa Valley quality in an accessible wine, Eshcol delivers an incredible value.

Trefethen's Notes:

 When we think of sustainability, we look at what will help us thrive for another three generations; how we can continue to farm the best quality grapes while sustaining our business and our land, all while enriching the lives of those that work here and those that enjoy our wines around the world. With that important context, we consider our estate as an integrated vineyard and winery ecosystem and focus on the following elements to build resilience within it.

As an estate property, every bottle of wine starts in the vineyard. Everything we do comes from this land. So, we strive to keep it healthy. That starts by limiting what we take from it. We embrace the use of cover crops, cultivating specific plants in between the vine rows, which not only increases biodiversity but can improve soil health, and the owls, bats, and hawks who live on the estate serve as natural pest control.

 

Production area
Main Ranch, Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley

Varieties
50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec, 1% Cabernet Franc

Description
Eshcol Red is an authentic and approachable red blend, sourced entirely from our Main Ranch vineyard. Our winemaker Bryan Kays crafts a unique blend each year, featuring the strengths of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot complemented by the inclusion of smaller amounts of Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc.
The wine opens with bold fruit-forward aromas of blackberry and dried cherry. On the palate, bright red fruit flavors give way to modest tannins and balanced acidity, making it very food-friendly and ready to pair with casual dinners at home.

Food Pairings
Perfect with steak, venison, and meaty stews or on its own with blue or creamy cheese.
