Food Pairings for Trefethen Cabernet Sauvignon Oak Knoll
Dark fruit on the nose, medium body, fantastically balanced wood and slightly dry earthy finish. Love it.
On the nose, black current, bing cherry, and hints of forest floor and just the slightest tinge of menthol. On the palate, medium-full bodied mix of dark fruits, white pepper, tar, cigar box, leather and hint of vanilla. Nice long, smokey finish, slightly peppery. Tannins still a bit firm - look forward to trying this with a few more years behind it.
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.
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

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
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!
External Reviews for Trefethen Cabernet Sauvignon Oak Knoll
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate wraps around the palate with lovely depth and roundness. Nothing in particular stands out, just the wine's sense of balance and harmony. Plums, chocolate, cassis and French oak are all layered into the creamy, generous finish. This attractive Cabernet has considerable early appeal, but with a little more attention it could make the move up to being truly distinctive and exciting. The 2009 is 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec, 1% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
Dark fruits, rich color and savory spices highlight the first impression of this wine. On the palate, it shows brightness with a touch of earthiness, caramel and black pepper. It has good density and richness through the finish.
Trefethen Cabernet sourced from Oak Knoll in Napa Valley has all the hallmark character that we expect from valley floor Cabernet. Dark berry fruit character with spice notes and lush palate feel.
Lush aromas fill your glass with black currant, boysenberries, and bing cherries. On the palate, these fruit flavors lengthen into a spicy finish with the help of balanced tannin as a backbone.
Aromas of coffee and black cherry with hints of bay leaf carry through onto the palate lengthening the flavor profile. firm tannins build alongside flavors of ripe plum fruit and walnut in this classic Napa Cabernet.
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.
