Nose of oak-laced red currant and Bing cherry. Some light, flinty minerality along with a green note, almost stemmy quality. On the palate, it's dense and lush. Strong tannin frame. Very dry. Flavors of kirsch, currant, dark cherry, vanilla and some dusty coca on the finish. Polished fruit, focused and dense. Good acid, so should progress nicely over the next 5 or so years. Really nice bitter chocolate notes on the aftertaste. 88 pts.

Winemaker's Notes:

Trefethen Merlot is classically rich in color. Robust berry fruit and black cherry are caressed with a hint of vanilla from the toasty oak in both the nose and palate of this full-bodied wine. Spice and plummy notes follows in mid-palate with the finish being long and lush with well formed tannins and the right proportion of oak. There is a great depth of flavor and an opulent mouthfeel on the finish.
