Behrens & Hitchcock Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Kenefick Ranch Cuvée Reserve 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

90-93 points Robert Parker: The 1999 Merlot Alder Springs Vineyard (350 cases) is superb, but shows a cooler climate, almost jammy, red berry nose, with notes of graphite, toast, and spice. The wine has gorgeous purity, relatively low acidity, and a thick yet superb finish. (Dec 2000)

A basement, in Humboldt County, outfitted with just two dairy tanks, was the humble beginning of our winery. Of this tiny, dug out space, Les assured Joe Bob that, “We have all the room we will ever need.” However, the roots of Behrens & Hitchcock are found in Folie Douce, the award-winning restaurant Lisa Drinkward and Les Behrens launched in 1991 in Arcata, California.

In the course of creating the wine list, Les met many winemakers and received encouragement from several to begin making his own wine. The idea, which seemed almost nonsensical at first, quickly began to take root in Les’ mind. Read less

Saturated ruby. High-toned aromas of medicinal black cherry espresso licorice and mint. Juicy youthful and intensely flavored with surprising sweetness of fruit. Jammy cherry and licorice flavors nicely framed by firm acids. Finishes with slightly aggressive tannins. 88-91 points Stephen Tanzers IWC.
