Trefethen 2020 Eshcol Red Blend, Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley
Eshcol Red is an authentic and approachable red blend, sourced entirely from our Main Ranch vineyard. Our winemaker Bryan Kays crafts a unique blend each year, featuring the strengths of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot complemented by the inclusion of smaller amounts of Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. The wine opens with bold fruit-forward aromas of blackberry and dried cherry. On the palate, bright red fruit flavors give way to modest tannins and balanced acidity, making it very food-friendly and ready to pair with casual dinners at home.
Trefethen’s vision is reflected on Eshcol’s label and the packaging itself. The front label incorporates many aspects of the estate’s unique terroir and history, highlighting their ecological awareness through a focus on the rich diversity of wildlife that exists on the property, starting with its central image of a barn owl and extending to the various insects, fish, and plant life that also call the property home.
