Trefethen HãLo 2016

Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California

Notes from the Winemaker

This is an age-worthy wine that is exuberant, expressive, and ultimately exquisite. Aromas of cedar, tar, vanilla and blackberry are complemented by irresistible flavors of cassis, fresh plum, and a dusting of cocoa powder. Lingering threads of pepper and bay leaf carry through the bright but soft and silky finish.

The Vintage

Record-breaking winter rains filled our reservoirs and recharged the soil. Spring and early summer were warm, leading to very strong growth in the vines. The rest of the summer was more typical with warm days and cool nights, providing perfect conditions for the developing grapes. Our yields for the season were slightly lower than average and the resulting wines are classic—with complex flavors and our signature brightness on the palate.

The Wine

Our most rare and beloved Cabernet Sauvignon leads with dark fruit aromas layered with integrated floral notes. This wine is fresh and supple on the palate with flavors of blueberry, blackberry, and red currant supported by dusty, fine-grained tannins and hints of cedar and sage. The elegant structure and balance culminate in an uplifting, lengthy finish.

Food Affinities

This robust Cabernet Sauvignon pairs exceptionally well with highly marbled steak, like Winery Chef Chris’ Tomahawk Ribeye. This cut of meat is both dramatic and well-balanced and enhances the peppery berry notes of this wine, while the fat elongates its finish. Throw in the roasted potatoes and spinach to round out this dish, and this pairing will take your palate over the moon!

Reviews and Ratings

96 Points/Connoisseurs' Guide
A perennial winner in the *** Cabernet sweepstakes, Trefethen’s latest HaLo bottling again finds its accustomed place at the head of the class and ranks among the richest and deepest Napa Valley Cabernets from what is an altogether outstanding vintage. It is lavish stuff, to be sure, but it is impeccably balanced for a wine of its richness with great varietal authority, and it steps up to the plate and hits a towering home run. There is simply so much going on here that it will be hard to resist it even now, but do find a place for it well back in cellar and allow it the seven to ten years of age it deserves.
