Trefethen Cabernet Sauvignon 2014


SKU 30858


Vibrant and deep ruby color. The very attractive nose has aromas of fresh blackberry, red currant and dried fruit. The palate is round and opens with earthy/herbal tones and finishes with silky flavors of cassis, chocolate and black pepper. Balanced and drinkable now, but also an excellent addition to the collector's cellar. Food Affinities: Start with a base of a hearty red meat, duck or veal cut. To bring out the flavors in the wine, complement the entree with sides or sauces featuring mushrooms, roasted tomatoes or garden spices (oregano or thyme).

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.
