Rich & Powerful
This elegant and powerful red by Behren's has not been a guaranteed vintage each year since it's birth in 2005. This blend is exciting since it still has a brightness while showing deep purple and being full of dusty tannins. Notes on the nose and palette include, wood, black currant, white pepper, cigar and spiced plums. For now, 2018 was the last vintage made for this label - time to snatch up this collector's item!
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.
