Heavyweight Red 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Score: N/A Tasting Notes: This Cabernet Sauvignon isn't just another big bruiser. The blackberry and currant aromas are swift and lingering. The rich fruit flavors don't feint or dodge-they're straight ahead and swarming. And like the best heavyweights, the flavors come at you in combinations and by the time you figure one out, you get hit with another. Premium, oak aged Cabernet Sauvignon blended with Syrah and Zinfandel. Three Collector's Labels are available for each vintage (Winery Notes) Web Site: Click Here

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

This is by far the best cab I have ever tasted in my entire life and recommend it to anyone who is a full bodied drinker. It lingers on the palette for forever and the combo of the spices and the fruits are intense
