‘18 Trefethen Dragon’s Tooth
This wine opens with expressive aromas of cherry and blackberry accented with notes of fig, tobacco leaf, and sarsaparilla. Full-bodied and balanced, the integrated flavors of ripe dark fruit lead to a lush and abundant finish. Rich, yet fresh and bright, this wine is incredibly enchanting. Balanced and supple on the palate, the finish is mouthwateringly smooth.
Winery Chef Chris Kennedy enjoys Dragon‘s Tooth with slow-cooked peppers and tomatoes for the deep richness that complements this wine perfectly. He suggests pairing with leaner cuts of beef like flank or skirt steak.
