Varietal: Blended Red Wine (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec)
Region: Napa, California – USA
Deep color on this “Bourdeaux Blend” with silky flavors of fruit. Â Excellent body that pairs well with most meats or with a group of friends.
Recommendations: Well, it’s official – the last bottle from my October trip to California is finally gone. Â A moment of silence if we could….thank you. Â I had been eying my bottle of Trefethen Double T more and more recently, trying to decide what to drink it with. Â A recent grocery shopping trip made up my mind when my wife and I picked up a pair of excellent beef roasts.
Dark in the glass and with amazing flavors of fruit that were both silky and bold at the same time, the Double T was a great compliment to the beef, potatoes, and carrots that were my dinner on Saturday. Â As is my usual standard for excellent wine, the Double T was just as enjoyable after the meal was gone as it was during.
Sadly, all good things must come to an end and that’s never more true than with wine. Â While I do not lament opening up the bottle, I do regret that I can’t just run out to Trefethen and pick up a bottle any time I want. Â However, if you’re ever in Napa Valley, I do highly recommend a visit to them as their wine is amazing and their tasting room is a great place to spend an afternoon.
While I don’t think you’ll find the Trefethen Double T in most wine shops, if you do I highly recommend grabbing a bottle and enjoying it with dinner, with family, with friends, or with all of the above.
