96pts, Robert Whitley, Wine Review Online - "This vintage of Trefethen's estate Cabernet is a stunning example of the winery's prowess over the past four decades. It has everything, and everything is in balance, making it a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon of uncommon harmony. On the nose this vintage exhibits aromas of ripe cassis and wood-spice. On the palate it is seamless and inviting, with layers of rich dark fruits, silky tannins and a lasting finish"

Winemakers Notes - "Vibrant and deep ruby in color. The nose offers enticing aromas of blackberries, black cherries and currants; while the oak adds clove, cedar and toffee notes. The palate is greeted by fine tannins and finishes round and silky. Balanced and drinkable now, but also an excellent addition to the collector's cellar." 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Malbec, 4% Merlot.14.1% ABV.
