Bold & Rich
There is weight to this wine. A sense of earth and forest floor, yet an airiness that hints of salinity and ocean breeze. It is dense and brooding with layers of cocoa and roasted plums, and firm tannins to keep it all contained. Not to go overboard on this, but the name is very fitting to this bottle, to this time and place.
About the Winery
Behrens Family Winery
Perched high on top of Spring Mountain in Napa Valley, Behrens Family Winery is a boutique winery in the truest sense. Since 1993 the winery has been owned by Les Behrens and Lisa Drinkward, who produce small lots of six or seven wines a year to maintain the highest quality and consistency of their wines. Each wine is a low tech labor of love and truly “hand-crafted”: crushed into one-ton T-bins, punched down by hand, gently transferred to barrel, and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
The owners make it a priority to partner with small, interesting and low-yielding vineyard sites, working with growers who they know, like and trust, and who are as obsessive about quality as they are. The excellence of the wine speaks for itself.
