2015 Trefethen Oak Knoll District Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1361926 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Blended with small amounts of Petit Verdot, Malbec and Merlot, this is an impressive wine well worthy of the producer’s 50th anniversary. Currant, boysenberry and light handfuls of spice are wrapped in soft, polished tannins that offer an elegant length. *Editors’ Choice* (VB) Inner quote mark (9/2018)

94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Lack of rain combined with a warm summer resulted in one of the earliest harvests this estate has seen, starting September 5. Smaller grapes than usual made this a very structured, concentrated wine, with plenty of tannin, savoury and spicy flavours, alongside aromas of bay leaves. The blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot, and 4% Malbec - aged for 18 months in a mix of French, American and Hungarian oak. Marks a new level of quality. (EM) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A fresher, welcome expression for 2015 that shows notes of Thai basil, chilli, herb, cedar, elderberries and crushed violets. Really nicely composed with vibrant acidity, linear, firm tannins and a chewy finish. Drink now or hold. Inner quote mark (5/2018)

Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Stylish, on the tight, youthful side but also sporting a fair measure of varietal black cherry fruit, this medium-full-bodied effort sets hinted-at suppleness against its somewhat firm, waiting-to-be-resolved tannin and slightly evident acidity. Withal, it is a wine worth considering for its potential to soften and open up over time. *One Star* Inner quote mark (4/2018)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Deep crimson with some purple. Mild and muted nose but lovely rich sweetness on the palate. Dry, lively finish with real zest. Orange zest and pith. Still chewy. 17+/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "Deep ruby in color, this exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon opens with fragrant notes of blackberry, bay leaf, coffee and chocolate. The palate is supported by velvety tannins and features flavors that tend more towards red cherries and baking spices. Our Cabernet Sauvignon vines are planted in the gravelly soils of our estate vineyard in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. These well-drained soils, combined with limited yields and our moderate climate, produce Cabernet Sauvignon fruit with complex flavors and a special brightness on the palate."
