2016 Trefethen Oak Knoll District Napa Valley Merlot

SKU #1398754 96 points Decanter

 Wonderfully plush fruit with red and dark cherries, bramble, chocolate, vanilla and cedar. Well integrated tannins, silky, real ageing potential.  (5/2019)

92 points James Suckling

 At once very ripe and lively with very attractive cherries and supple tannins that neatly fill out the full body, the finish smooth and long. Drink or hold.  (2/2019)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

 Thick and leathery in black fruit, this perennial classic from the region has a depth of flavor and texture that is structured and full of grace. Blended with 9% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec, it shows toasty oak, clove and integrated tannins that soften in the glass. (VB)  (8/2019)

K&L Notes

"Trefethen Family Vineyards produces a diverse range of award-winning varietal, blended, and reserve wines – all from our Napa Valley estate – exhibiting the classic hallmarks of fine wine quality: richness with elegance, concentration with finesse, complexity with harmony, and sophistication with approachability. Reflecting both the relatively cool climate of our Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley estate vineyard and the Trefethen family’s preference for balanced wines, this classic style dovetails perfectly with the growing movement of connoisseurs in the United States away from wines of unbridled alcohol and ripeness toward wines of greater finesse and food-friendliness."
