|For a wine that is relatively young, the nose is more than generous. There is ample dark fruit literally popping out of the glass, with whiffs of warm spice and cedar that keep me coming back just to take in the aromas themselves. But as pretty as the nose is, the wine really shines once tasted. The texture is fleshy and supple, with flavors of blackberry, plum and cocoa coming to the fore, followed by a lingering trail of nutmeg and tobacco on the long finish. And although it is opulent and assertive, there is a sense of togetherness and proportion here. It is more than able to be enjoyed on its own, but this wine will be even more pleasurable with a rich, gamey dish like duck with cherry sauce or Mediterranean-style rack of lamb. In the end, the B.R. Cohn Trestle Glen Cabernet will be as much a source of comfort as of springtime excitement and inspiration.
