Saturday, February 29th a group of wine aficionados gathered to taste through some of Napa Valley’s most sought after “cult” Cabernets in our tasting room.
The lineup included:
VINE HILL RANCH “VHR” – 100 Points (almost sold out)
KAPCSANDY 2016 CABERNET “GRAND VIN” – 100 Points (almost sold out)
PROMONTORY 2014 PROPRIETARY RED*, NAPA VALLEY -100 Points (almost sold out)
COLGIN 2016 IX ESTATE – 100 Points (almost sold out)
SCREAMING EAGLE 2016 “THE FLIGHT” – 98 Points (almost sold out)
And we had a SURPRISE “BROWN BAG” wine…. BEVAN 2017 ONTOGENY PROPRIETARY RED – 99 POINTS
One of our guest guessed the wine, but what was more surprising is that everyone agreed that “DOLLAR-COST-AVERAGE” the BEVAN 2017 ONTOGENY was the BEST wine in the lineup…. On that note, we still have a few cases available if you like to order some.
Jeb Dunnuck 99 Points: “While the BEVAN 2017 ONTOGENY Red Wine is the least expensive wine in the lineup, it comes from all the single vineyards and in 2017, it doesn’t give an inch with regard to quality. In fact, it might be my favorite in the lineup. Awesome notes of blueberries, cranberries, blood orange, white flowers, and liquid violets all flow to a full-bodied 2017 that has purity, richness, balance, and length in spades. It’s another sexy, straight-up heavenly wine from Russell Bevan that’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face.”
Winemaker Notes: “Ontogeny is pure bloody hell, showcasing the best each of the vineyards has to offer. A fruit profile that everyone can appreciate, with massive density and supple tannins. It is a blend from my big boy vineyards. The wine is absolutely dynamic, with linear intensity, great balance and good acidity making it very food-friendly offering great power and concentration – a classic Ontogeny.”
