Bevan Cellars Sugarloaf Mountain Proprietary Red Blend 2016

$249

...Very deep purple-black in color, it features earth, redcurrants, red and black cherries, plums and loads of florals with a waft of dried herbs. The palate offers loads of lift from the menthol and red fruits, with a fine-grained texture and tons of energy on the finish. 605 cases produced. Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Victoria from Bevan Cellars came to town and put on a wonderful tasting of some current releases. See my note on the EE for my thoughts on the comparison. This seemed closed at first so I initially favored the EE, but the CF aromatics here won me over by the end of the night. Explosive nose full of rich blackberries and spice. Potpourri too. Velvet like finish. These cabs were only bottled in April and even with a 4-hr decant, they drank well (Bevan signature style).

Completely coats the glass with dark ruby veins. Rich nose dark spices and black fruits. Heavy tannins (8/10) with a full body. Layered palate with blackberries, spices and a touch of oak. Long and lingering finish. Drink from 2019 till 2039. (93-96)

Decanted for 1 1/2 hours. Beautiful wine. Has a lot of life left in it. Although it was powerful it was soft at the same time. Lovely blue and black fruit on the nose.

This is so amazingly delicious! Blackberry, dark chocolate, and licorice with a super-sexy plush texture. No trace of heat; just perfect balance. Wow
