Critical Acclaim


Wilfred Wong of Wine.com

COMMENTARY: Napa Valley Cabernet blends—also known as Bordeaux style reds—have yielded mixed results in the $20 range. The 2015 Trefethen Family Vineyards Double T Red Wine, made from a mix of Bordeaux grape varieties, stands out as one of the best wines of the lot. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows nice richness and depth of fruit. Its aromas and flavors of ripe berries, oak accents, and savory spices should pair it well with a savory lamb stew.
