Follow Napa Valley's Route 29 north to Calistoga, and then keep going just 2 1/2 more miles. You'll arrive at the pinnacle of the Napa Valley - the northernmost wedge where the Vaca mountain range meets the Mayacamas range. Here you will also find Bennett Lane Winery, sitting snugly at the edge of its own well-maintained Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard. Owners Randy and Lisa Lynch purchased the property only five and a half years ago, but Bennett Lane is already making a splash in wine country with its lush textured Cabernet Sauvignon and a no-nonsense red wine varietal blend called Maximus, composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. The winery has garnered an incredible thirteen 90+ Point Scores from Wine Spectator in four short years. Maximus leads the way in Bennett Lane's quest to produce high quality Napa Valley red wine. The 2002 Maximus was named the Top Value Napa Valley Cabernet for the 2002 vintage by Wine Spectator's James Laube and the 2003 Maximus made a splash with a 90 Point rating from the Wine Spectator. Our newest vintage, 2005 Maximus, was also awarded 90 Points by Wine Spectator and was named an "Outstanding Vallue". The Cabernet Sauvignon program at Bennett Lane has two stars shining, the Napa Valley Cabernet and the Primus Reserve Cabernet. Our 2003 Vintages were both listed among the Top 50 Cabs in Napa for the year, with the Reserve scoring a stellar 93 Points. The 2004 releases followed suit, with a 91 Point Score for the Reserve and 92 Points for our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Our latest release is the 2006 Reserve Cabernet, scoring 92 Points in Wine Spectator. Read less

This highly anticipated new release from Bennett Lane Winery is our white wine partner to our proprietary blend, Maximus. This Napa Valley white wine is a blend of 87% Sauvignon Blanc, 11% Chardonnay, and 2% Muscat. With aromatic notes of white peach, papaya and orange blossom, this incredible white wine displays flavors of mandarin oranges, mango and nectarine. The body is crisp and elegant, with layers of fruit and a clean refreshing finish. This is the perfect wine for summer.

Wine Tasting NotesThis Napa Valley white wine is a blend of 87% Sauvignon Blanc, 11% Chardonnay, and 2% Muscat. Honey suckle, orange blossom and white peaches waft from the glass with tropical notes of mango and passion fruit and hints of ruby grape fruit. On the palate the wine is crisp and has bright fresh exotic fruit flavors of nectarine and key lime. The body is full and slightly off dry with rich lingering layers of fruit and nuances of orange flower water with a touch of minerality.
