Behrens & Hitchcock Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena Left Blank 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

A deep, black/red color graces the glass, as the nose announces itself from a distance. Earthy scents of the dark forest floor blend with aromas and flavors of meat grilling with sage and mushrooms. The flavors are explosive and add dark fruits, cherry and cocoa to this new wine. The mouthfeel is lush, yet bright and has great balance. A long finish of plum and lavender is your "just desserts".

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. While Lisa was developing an incredible, French-inspired menu, Les was busy cultivating a superb wine list and cellar which eventually received the Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence. 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

The 2004 Left Blank is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. With an alcohol content of 15.6%, this wine packs a punch of smoothness! it exhibits hints of minerals, new saddle leather, graphite, and smoke. Rich, full-bodied, and superbly concentrated with a seamless integration of wood, acidity, alcohol, and tannin. The mouthfeel is lush, yet bright and has great balance. Long smotth finsh. This is one of my favorite wines.
