Tasting Notes


From two Oakville vineyards, Tin Box and Tench, the 2011 Curmudgeon is a blend of 66.67% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon. Its opaque purple color is followed by soaring aromas of spring flowers, pen ink, espresso roast, white chocolate, black currants and mulberries. This deep, full-bodied, seamlessly constructed wine reveals perfectly integrated wood, tannin, alcohol and acidity. An amazing effort, it is already delicious, complex and outrageous. Drink it over the next decade.


Weaves together a charming mix of mocha and vanilla flavors, with scents of espresso and cedar. Notes of red fruits, cherry, plum and raspberry run underneath, with a chunky, rocky aftertaste that imparts character and distinction. Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.

“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
