Trefethen 2010 Dragon's Tooth

Trefethen 2010 Dragon’s Tooth

Price : $75 Rating: 15.5/20 Region: Napa Valley (Oak Knoll District), California Varietals: 58 percent Malbec, 22 percent Cabernet Sauvignon & 20 percent Petit Verdot Production: 980 cases Alcohol: 14.8 percent Tasting Notes: Dragon’s Tooth is a proprietary red blend that pays homage to the Trefethen family’s Welsh heritage. Adorning the bottle label is the guardian and symbol of Wales, a red dragon. Made entirely from estate-grown grapes, the 2010 Dragon’s Tooth is bold and big-bodied. Well-structured to take advantage of what each grape contributes, the wine features fragrant berry aromas, mouth-filling dark fruit flavors, supple tannins and a rich finish characterized by chocolate and nutmeg. Food Pairings: Grilled steak, roasted lamb, duck breast For more information, see GAYOT’s Trefethen Family Vineyards winery profile Other red blends we have tasted Check out GAYOT’s Napa Valley Travel Guide Related Content: Top 10 Steak Wines Wine and Food Pairing Wine of the Week Reviews New Releases
