In case you missed it….100 Point  Bevan “Bordeaux Selections”!

 
Sorry, the 2019 Bevans are almost sold out! There is NO 2020 vintage due to the Napa fires, so the next release will not be until late 2023 early 2024! I suggest to jump on this while I have it in stock!

Bevan 2019 Ontogeny Proprietary Red, Napa Valley
GGWC 119.99 (Max. order 6)


Winery Notes: ”This is the first wine we blend every year, and this year’s result is powerful. As you have come to expect each release, the core of this blend is Cabernet Sauvignon, and in 2019 it comes from some of the rockiest blocks at Tench Vineyard. It has a fabulous meaty quality and all the fruit to back it up. It was quite an undertaking to craft a wine that could stand up to the ’18 Ontogeny that was so yummy, but what we have in ’19 is an even bigger beast.

Jeb Dunnuck 99 Points : “A blend put together by Bevan from the single vineyards, the Ontogeny cuvée is year-in, year-out one of the greatest values in Cabernet Sauvignon. His 2019 Ontogeny is no exception, revealing a dense purple hue as well as rock star notes of crème de cassis, violets, tobacco leaf, and chocolate. It’s a big, classic Bevan wine and has remarkable purity, silky, polished tannins, and not a hard edge to be found. Don’t miss it!”

FMW 98 Points: The 2019 Ontogeny offers a deep purple hue, and an exquisite bouquet of black and stone fruits, crushed flowers and cocoa.The wine is intense, full in body with layer upon layer of lush flavors on the palate, showcasing incredible purity of fruit. It’s a gorgeous wine that’s showing well today, better tomorrow and should please for 10-15 years!


Bevan 2019 Tench EE Red (Cabernet Blend) Napa Valley – 99 Points 
GGWC 219.99 (Max. order 4)


Winery Notes: “The Cabernet Sauvignon in this blend comes from Block 2A at the Tench Vineyard, which is all red dirt. This soil profile gives us more blue fruits then black, but the tannins are also a little gentler, which we balance by blending in Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Franc has massive tannins. That addition adds concentration and structure, pulling the wine back on the palate for a mouthwatering finish. There is no doubt the concentration we achieved blending the EE in 2019 is phenomenal.”

Robert Parker 99 Points: “Made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the 2019 Proprietary Red EE Tench Vineyard is a barrel sample with a deep garnet-purple color. It leaps out of the glass with crème de cassis, blueberry pie and black cherry cordial with nuances of potpourri, kirsch and tobacco leaf. Full-bodied, the palate is bright and refreshing with bags of juicy fruit and a soft texture, finishing with a floral lift.”

Jeb Dunnuck 98 Points: “Lots of smoked black raspberry, cassis, sappy herbs, and forest floor notes emerge from the 2019 Tench Vineyard EE Red Wine, a soft, supple, incredibly opulent barrel sample that hits all the right notes. With terrific purity, ripe, supple tannins, and outstanding length, it should be one of the more accessible wines on release yet still have a long evolution given its balance.”


Bevan 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Tench Vineyard Oakville
Napa Valley –  99+ Points
 
GGWC 219.99 (Max. order 3)


Winery Notes: “‘The incredibly rocky soils of the Tench block this wine comes from, consistently develops incredible, intense flavors: acidity on the tip of your tongue, weight that pushes from start to finish, blackberry and currant fruit, with great texture and finesse. A massive wine that maintains a sense of grace and elegance.”

Robert Parker 99+ Points: “A barrel sample, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Tench Vineyard is deep garnet-purple colored and skips out of the glass with bright cherry, blackberries, crushed blackcurrants and plum preserves scents with hints of menthol, bay leaves and candied violets. Full-bodied, the palate is bombastic and juicy with plush tannins and lively acid, finishing long.”

Jeb Dunnuck 99 Points: “A stellar looking barrel sample, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Tench offers a vivid purple hue as well as pretty blue fruits, iron, white flowers, and a liquid violet-like character. It’s more elegant and streamlined compared to the more opulent 2018, with beautiful balance.”


Bevan 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Sugarloaf Napa Valley – 100 Points
GGWC 219.99 (Max. order 2)


Winery Notes: “Dark chocolate, violets, tobacco, spring flowers, this wine is a hedonist’s delight. The Cabernet Franc provides robust tannins, where the Merlot gives an insane, mouth-coating lusciousness. This wine continually amazes us with how gracefully it ages. The 2012 Sugarloaf is just now hitting its sweet spot. 2019 will no doubt prove the same age-worthiness.”

Jeb Dunnuck 100 Points: “Checking in as a blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot, the 2019 Proprietary Red Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard is one of the top wines in 2019 (at least at this stage). Offering an incredible nose of black raspberries, cassis, wildflowers, violets, and wood smoke, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a layered, ultra-fine, seamless texture, great tannins, and a great, great finish. The purity is just about off the charts.”
