An even more “perfect” Napa Merlot than the 96-point 2015.

In fact, Suckling rates it the best Trefethen Estate Merlot ever:

Lovely balance and firmness to this red with blackberry, ash, black-olive and walnut aromas and flavors. It’s medium-to full-bodied with a tight tannin backbone and a fresh finish. Drink or hold.

And the Wine Enthusiast rates it the second best all time:

Herbaceous and tart in red currant, this is a graceful and balanced red wine that is soft and supple in tannin. Ready for the table, it delivers consistency and structure without fuss, delivering elegant cedar and clove tones as it finishes.

As does CellarTracker, which rates this only a notch behind the great 2013.
