Behrens & Hitchcock Merlot Oakville 2001

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

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.

A sturdy, rich, intense and concentrated wine, with elaborate cedary oak wrapped around dense currant, mineral, licorice and black berry, finishing with detailed tannins and a long, complex aftertaste. Best from 2005 through 2012. 213 cases made. &#8... Wine Spectator. A Merlot wine from California in USA. 2001 Behrens and Hitchcock Merlot Fortuna Vineyard 750ml
