Trefethen 2013 Merlot

92 Points by Wine Enthusiast:

Constructed in 1886 by a Scottish sea captain, Hamden McIntyre, our winery was originally known as Eshcol. McIntyre designed it as a gravity-flow system: a horse-drawn winch brought grapes to the third floor of the three-story structure for crushing; gravity carried the juice to the second floor for fermenting; and, eventually, the wine descended to the first floor for aging. Eshcol was among a number of wineries McIntyre designed during this period; the others were Greystone (now The Culinary Institute of America), Far Niente and Inglenook.

Description

Details

The bright ruby color and festive nose reminds you of being "home for the holidays." Notes of spice cake and vanilla lead the way to aromas of black cherry, ripe plum and black licorice. On the palate, the wine is well structured and balanced, offering flavors of chocolate with a hint of fine leather. The mouthfeel is full and rich, with exciting tannins ending with a rich finish.
