Winemaker 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.... View More

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

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.

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

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.

Wine Enthusiast

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.

A century on, the estate has grown to 345 acres, and the mantle now rests with fourth-generation winemaker, Chester Osborn. By maintaining a focus... View More
