91pts James Suckling
A very big style for this wine, with dense and rich fruit, powerful wood and tannins and a flavorful finish. Needs time to mellow, but those who like big wines will enjoy it. Better after 2024.
HaLo, Trefethen's most rare and beloved Cabernet Sauvignon, is smooth and fresh. Aromas of ripe raspberry with notes of pepper, bay leaf, and a touch of sasparilla. On the palate, this is a dark, dense wine, with layers of plum and raspberry, and notes of baking spices and tobacco. The finish is sustained and powerful.
This robust wine pairs exceptionally well with highly marbled steak, like Winery Chef Chris’ Tomahawk Ribeye. This cut of meat is both dramatic and well-balanced and enhances the peppery berry notes of this wine, while the fat elongates its finish. Throw in the roasted potatoes and spinach to round out this dish, and this pairing will take your palate over the moon!
