Double T Napa Valley Red Blend, Trefethen Family Vineyards 2016

Trefethen Estate


We are excited to add Double T from Trefethen Family Vineyards in Napa, usually only available to the US Domestic Market, Trefethen has offered a limited amount of their double T Red blend for us to share with our customers. 

The Double T blend is produced using the estate fruit that is leftover from the main bottling. The Grapes used for Double T Red are from the same estate vineyards, which are used to produce their other wines, but  Double T uses the younger vines and some of blending harvest left over. Rest assured, the quality we know and expect from Trefethen still remains, thanks to their prime location at the cool end of Napa Valley and the amazing 2016 vintage. This makes the Trefethen Double T excellent value for an outstanding Napa Red. 

Production area
Planted in gravelly soils in the northwestern quadrant of the stunning Trefethen estate vineyards, located in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. These well-drained soils combined with limited yields produce Cabernet Sauvignon fruit with bright and complex flavours.

Varieties
55% Cabernet Sauvignon
23% Petit Verdot
13% Malbec
8% Merlot
1% Cabernet Franc

Description
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.

Food Pairings
This is a bold punchy wine, so Beef or venison would be our first recommendation, followed by casseroles, pies. but easily compliments blue or rich creamy cheeses.
