Trefethen 2019 "Eshcol" Napa Red

$ 26.99 $ 39.99

Trefethen's new Napa Valley Red Blend "Eshcol" replaces the Double T in their lineup.  Eshcol was the original name of the property when it was first planted in the late 1800's, it is a classic Bordeaux-style blend.  While we're sad to see the Double T disappear, the Eshcol is definitely a step up in quality. Eshcol Red is sourced entirely from Trefethen's Main Ranch vineyard. Winemaker Bryan Kays uses Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot complemented by smaller amounts of Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc to give winedrinkers a taste of the exceptional quality that the Trefethen estate can produce.  Opens with bold fruit-forward aromas of blackberry and dried cherry. On the palate, bright red fruit flavors give way to modest tannins and balanced acidity, making it very food-friendly and easy to pair with a variety of cuisines.
