TREFETHEN MERLOT ESTATE GROWN OAK KNOLL NAPA 2018

TREFETHEN MERLOT ESTATE GROWN OAK KNOLL NAPA 2018

Ample rainfall in the spring recharged the soil profile and provided a strong start to the growing season. The weather during the summer featured consistent warmth and sunshine without any major heat spells. Cooler than average temperatures in August and September slowed the ripening process, providing long hang time and leading to complex flavor development. October was mostly dry and warmer than usual allowing us to pick each block at optimal ripeness. The harvest was complete before November and the start of an epic rainy season.

Aromas of ripe raspberry and plum are layered with earthy spices of black pepper and tea leaves. Concentrated red fruit flavors are fresh and bright on the palate leading to expansive notes of spice and forest floor. The finish is well-rounded with balanced tannins and graceful acidity.

James Suckling
“Lovely balance and firmness to this red with blackberry, ash, black-olive and walnut aromas and flavors. It’s medium-to-full-bodied with a tight tannin backbone and a fresh finish. Drink or hold.” – January 2021
