This wine is a blend of the five classic red Bordeaux varieties, with Cabernet Sauvignon augmented by smaller amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec. It offers fragrant aromas of plums, blackberry jam, black pepper, clove and toasted oak. Medium bodied, the palate displays flavors of blackberries, raspberries and currants with rich chocolate on the finish. Delicious with everything from burgers and pasta to grilled steaks and lamb chops.
Many of the vines producing the grapes for this wine are trained on a quadrilateral cordon trellis, commonly known as 'Double T'. The vine is pruned and trained so that its branches, or cordons, form four arms resembling two Ts, hence the name. Double T also refers to the two Trefethens, owners John and Janet, who created the Tempting Taste of this fine red wine, which you may find yourself Tasting Twice.
The perfect companion to any barbecue, Double T Red is big on burgers, ribs, pulled pork, as well as the occasional brisket.
