Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of rich plum and cherry touched with cedar lead you to wonderfully concentrated dark berry fruits with a hint of black pepper on the palate. Excellent tannin structure combined with exceptional fruit forward flavors provides a long, lingering finish.

About Trefethen Vineyards:

Built in 1886, John and Janet Trefethen began restoring what is today the Trefethen winery in 1973. A national historic landmark and the only wooden gravity-flow winery in the Napa Valley, Trefethen is also one of Napa's largest estate wineries, with its 600 acres of vineyards surrounding the winery. The Trefethen family creates Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Riesling as well as limited quantities of Library Selection Chardonnay, Library Selection Cabernet Sauvignon and Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.
