External Reviews for Trefethen Cabernet Sauvignon Oak Knoll Reserve
This is Trefethen's Reserve Cabernet, made from the best lots of their estate wine.

The flavors of blackberries, cassis, dark chocolate, buttered toast and cedar flood the mouth, tightly controlled by firm tannins and good acidity. Decant for several hours if you open it now, but better to give it 6–10 years in the bottle."
