Trefethen Cabernet Sauvignon Oak Knoll 2006
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Sweet and fruity, rich nose. Nice berry (plums and cherry) flavors with some fig notes. Good tannins on the finish with a coffee and menthol lingering note.
Sweet nose of coffee and tobacco under a fruit forward wave of aroma. Firm tannins and flavors of black fruit and ripe plum. Great fruit on this cab and it's very approachable now. - Tasted at winery 4/22/10

Black cherry, black plum, fig and other black fruits. Heavy and densely concentrated palate with grippy tannins and a slightly peppery finish. Laced throughout with chocolate. It should continue to improve even more with some age. - Tasted at winery 4/22/10
recently opened and enjoyed, earlier than I might have, noticing the cork had gone bad and ejected some wine. The wine still had good punch through solid tannin, a hint of oak and some plum and apple notes. Decanted and the second glass was fully opened. great buy, would pick-up again!

Trefethen Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Oak Knoll District 2006 750ML
Our Cabernet Sauvignon vines are planted in the northwestern quadrant of our estate vineyard in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley, in gravelly soils that warm quickly in the spring. This warmer site, combined with limited yields, produces Cabernet Sauvignon fruit with bright, complex flavors, resulting in wine with deep ruby color and heady aromas of plums, blackberries, and forest-floor spice.
