Trefethen 'Dragon's Tooth' 2013 Red Wine, $45,89-$53.99, 92 points, poured a deep dark purple/red grading ruby toward the transparent wine ring and stained-legged glass wall.
Aromas were lavish and profuse, steeped with cedar, clove, toasty blackberry jam, and fresh laundered linen.
Full-bodied with mouthwatering acidity and firm grainy tannins which managed to smoothly deliver the aromas onto the palate with hints of violets and plums.
Finished long, a bit austere, but with exciting warm spices, lingonberry jam, and a well-balanced 14.5% alcohol.
Varietals were a Bordeaux-styled 52% Malbec, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 12% Petit Verdot.
