“Top producer, long history of classic wine, definer of regional characteristics, signature variety — put them all together and it equals a high score, right? Certainly not always, but in this case the answer is an unqualified yes. This is a classic Napa Valley wine, showing once again Trefethen’s mastery with Cabernet.”
