Bevan Cellars Ontogeny Napa Valley Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

$229

The nearly perfect 2012 Proprietary Red Ontogeny is Bevan’s least expensive and biggest production cuvee (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. Robert Parker
