More Vintages and Sizes of Trefethen - Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve:
Author: Robert Parker
The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve also comes from Trefethen's Oak Knoll vineyards in the southern sector of Napa Valley. Composed of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, it spent 30 months in French oak, and finished at 14.5% natural alcohol. The color is a dense ruby/purple (more opaque than the basic cuvee) and the bouquet reveals notes of vanillin, creme de cassis and graphite. This young, promising, full-bodied, rich, textured beauty possesses impressive purity as well as a full yet well-balanced style that offers both robust substance and considerable elegance. While accessible, this beauty should hit its peak in 4-5 years and last for another 15-20.
