Tasting Notes

WA99

The nearly perfect 2012 Proprietary Red Ontogeny is Bevan’s least expensive and biggest production cuvée (700 cases). A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Petit Verdot and 10% Cabernet Franc, it comes from four of Russell Bevan’s favorite vineyard sources – Tench, Tin Box, Two Dogs and Sugarloaf Mountain. A big fruit bomb, it boasts a dense purple color as well as loads of crème de cassis, tobacco leaf, underbrush, graphite, lavender, roasted meats and blackberries. Amazing aromatics and super-intensity make for a powerful, full-bodied wine to drink over the next 10-15 years.

WS94

Features tremendous density, range and depth of flavor, built around cedar- and tobacco-laced blackberry and currant notes. Tightens on the finish and gains a dusty herb and loamy earth edge, which gives the tannins a drying edge, showing traction and definition. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Drink now through 2028.

The Winery

Bevan Cellars

“Russell Bevan is one of the more outspoken producers in the Napa Valley, and so are his wines. These sumptuous, beautifully textured reds are full of personality. Made to be accessible right upon release, the Bevan wines are rich, intense, and hugely delicious.”
–Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Since their first vintage in 2005, Russell Bevan and Victoria de Crescenzo have made sure that the focus of Bevan Cellars is on the vineyards that they source their fruit from. The couple owns a 2-acre vineyard in Bennett Valley as well as procures grapes from Showket, Sugarloaf, Kick Ranch and other vineyards in the Napa and Sonoma counties. In regards to the winemaking approach, Bevan Cellars centers themselves on managing tannins, which results in wines that are decadent yet polished and perfect for your cellar.
