Trefethen Cabernet Sauvignon 2014


SKU 22200


The beautiful nose features aromas of blackberry, red currant and dried fruit. The palate is round and luxurious with herbal tones and well integrated oak. The elegant finish has complex flavors of cassis, cocoa and black pepper. Food Affinities: Bring out the flavors in the wine with the addition of thyme or black pepper over a prime cut of beef, pork or duck. Our favorites are wine braised short ribs or grilled beef tenderloin with a mushroom sauce.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon has a dense ruby/purple color, chalky tannins in the finish and hollowness in the mid-palate. I have been enjoying recent efforts from Trefethen, but this didn't make the grade. It is attractive on the attack, but falls off quickly and ends up a rather compact and monolithic wine.
