Composed of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc and 5% Merlot, the 2015 Proprietary Red EE Tench Vineyard gives a deep garnet-purple color and is scented of crushed red currants, ripe cherries, red plums and mulberries with wafts of dried meat, sage, pencil shavings and dusty soil. The full-bodied mouth is full-on gorgeous, with blockbuster ripe, fine-grained tannins and tons of red and black fruit layers complemented with earth and savory notions, culminating in an epically long, layered finish.
Pure perfection is the 2015 Tench Vineyard EE and it’s a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc and 5% Merlot brought up all in French oak. This tour de force boasts phenomenal notes of spring flowers, violets, plums, blueberries, black cherries, and incense. Full-bodied, seamless, perfectly balanced and layered, hats off to Bevan for this crazy good Napa Valley 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.”
