Trefethen Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 1998
Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California
The Wine: The intense color of opulent rubies is of note at the onset. Oak-scented cherry and berry aromas lead to rich fruit on the palate. A perfect mix of bright berry flavors laced with smoky oak held in balance with affirming tannins makes this wine luscious in the mouth through a long, lingering finish.
The Matches: An indulgent partner to the finest beef, lamb or game is found in this opulent Cabernet Sauvignon. The addition of thyme, full-flavored mushrooms or peppercorns to the entrée creates wonderful harmony with this wine.
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.
