esbrown reviewed Trefethen Oak Knoll Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2001 on December 30, 2005
Beautiful deep garnet tone. The extraction and viscosity on the sides of the glass speak of a heavy and rich wine, but this Cab remains elegant and balanced. Black cherries, cedar, currants, sage and tobacco mix together seemlessly on both the nose and the palate. The tannins are very firm, but there is enough fruit to keep the wine from feeling austere. The lingering finish starts in tobacco and moves through a green olive component and ends with a little cinnamon-inspired oak.
