    Winemaker's Notes:

    The High Trellis vineyard has been producing grapes since the late nineteenth century. It was nicknamed "The High Trellis" as its vines were the first at d'Arenberg to be trained above knee-height in the 1890s.

    As a young wine, the High Trellis has a dense, dark appearance with a ruby edge. The aroma is intense with ripe, black fruit characters suggesting mulberries, black currants and plums mixed with notes of cedar. Earthy notes appear as the wine opens up further. The palate flaunts ripe blackcurrant, cassis, and mulberry fruit with edgy, ripe tannins and the perfect balance of oak.

    This wine is approachable now and will gain considerable complexity and secondary savory characters with time in the bottle. The optimum drinking age is over the next 10 to 15 years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 The High Trellis Cabernet Sauvignon includes 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Merlot in the blend. The nose offers up cassis and violets along with pepper and earth notes. On the palate, black fruits dominate the nicely concentrated flavors. There is enough structure for 2-3 years of additional bottle age. It will be at its best from 2010 to 2017.

    Featuring tobacco, cassis and lesser quantities of mint and cocoa, d’Arenberg’s The High Trellis Cabernet is a full-bodied wine that offers plenty of flavor interest and depth at a reasonable price. It does show some slightly chewy, dusty tannins on the finish, but the fruit ultimately wins through, suggesting it will be at its best from 2010–2020.

    Deep ruby. Exotic herbal and incense aromas complicate deep red- and blackcurrant on the nose. Zestier strawberry and raspberry flavors are given grip by tangy minerals and lift by brisk acidity. The clean finish boasts vibrant mineral cut. An energetic, focused style that's balanced to age.

    Very nice bottle, a little acidic for the wife but I enjoyed it. Could use a year or 2 to mature. Will be buying again.

    My taste buds do not seem suited for this 90 rated wine... must be the screw cap!
