Description

Trefethen Dragon’s Tooth

This provocative blend presents blackberry and cracked pepper aromas with hints of cinnamon and baking spice. Vanilla, raspberry and toasty oak flavors segue into a long, chocolate-y finish that would disarm the fiercest of dragons. Malbec brings color and diversity of fruit to the palate; Cabernet Sauvignon offers dark fruits while Petit Verdot contributes structure.

Food matching: Grilled steak, roasted lamb or duck breast pair well with this unique and fearless blend. The wine also shines with dark fruit reduction sauces.

The Red Dragon on the label of the Dragon’s Tooth Napa Valley Red Wine originated in ancient British legend where two dragons—one red, one white—fight in the sky. The boy Merlin watches them with King Vortigern and when the red prevails, driving the white across the sea, the boy foretells the coming of King Arthur who will lead Vortigern’s people, the Welsh, to victory over the invading Saxons.

Catherine Trefethen, our First Lady, was Welsh. Her loves for wine, gardens and family were the inspiration for our estate in Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll District, and though she has departed, her spirit is still felt, especially in the cool foggy mornings when mist envelops the vineyard and our minds tend towards whimsical imaginings.
