Winemaker's Notes:

An exuberant wine full of fruit, this second vintage of our unique blend exhibits a deep purple color. Boisterous aromas of plum, black cherry, and raspberry pie are followed by ripe red fruit on the palate with balanced tannins that build to a spicy, smokey, cinnamon finish.
My Notes:

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.
