Below is the September, 2012 Featured Wine for the Wines by Jennifer Cellar Club:

 

Trefethen Family Vineyards

2008 Merlot

Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley


Trefethen Family Vineyards 2008 MerlotThe Trefethen estate vineyards are located in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley, at the cooler, southern end of the valley. Because Merlot flourishes in relatively cool growing regions with moist soils, itís extremely well-suited to this site.

As one of Napa's few remaining family wine estates, Trefethen has never purchased a single outside grape. They also were among the first to earn recognition as certified Napa Green, due in large part to their sustainable farming practices.

With 9% Cabernet Sauvignon blended in, the wine spends 17 months in 95% French & 5% American oak. Rich, savory aromas of cherry, bay leaf, cedar, leather and spice. The weighted mid-palate brings lush flavors of ripe raspberry, smokey molasses, and a hint of black pepper. Rich and layered, this is a balanced wine that will continue to develop.

Delicious with duck, barbecued chicken, cherry-glazed pork tenderloin, beef and lamb dishes, tomato-based pastas, or black olive and mushroom pizza.
