BEVANCAB '17BEVAN CELLARS "ONTOGENY" PROPRIETARY RED WINE NAPA VALLEY 2017
NVWE Notes: Deep, juicy, focused and concentrated, the nose of this flashy wine delivers a rush of black raspberry, black cherry, blueberry preserves, black currant, black fig, date sugar, baking-spice, licorice root, bouillon, black olive and forest floor scents. Things are just as dramatic on the palate, where the same fruit-spice mix rolls-out as a juicy, tongue-coating wave. None of these elements are at all lessened in the wine's luxurious, lingering finish, as the impression of densely-packed black cherry, black raspberry, Cassis, blackberry, sandalwood, licorice root, coffee bean, tobacco and dark earth flavors lingers in memory. As grand as it is now, this wine is at least five years from maturity. This is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc with the remainder divided between Merlot, Petite Verdot and Syrah is a blend sourced from all of their most prized vineyards. It is aged in 100% new French oak.
