Cemetery, Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Behrens Family Winery | Napa Valley, USA
Rich & Powerful
This star-of-the-show Napa Cabernet is famous all over the world due to its distinct label and being named after its winery, St.Helena's, which is a real cemetery. This wine is a product of meticulous farming and the finesse in vinification that Behrens is known for. The expression of this Cabernet Sauvignon is world-class and layered. Deep, seductive notes of smoky oak, perfumed violets and lots of mocha on the nose. The mouthfeel is lively with velvety tannins, blue fruit and spice on the palate, with the roundest most delicious finish. Get your hands on this life-changing specialty wine.
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.
