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 Read more »

  • The Zinner party was last night, but preparations began a week or two ago when I realized I had accumulated some Zins that needed consuming.  I had been lured by a cellar sale on BPWine that featured a ton of Turley wines from different vineyards at really attractive prices.  By the time I pulled the trigger, the best values appeared to be a 200...

  • Bennett Lane Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Napa Valley 2005

    Snoothrank:

    I was apprehensive when I pulled the cork as there were tiny spots of wine on the top of the cork, and quite a bit of wine all the way up the cork. However, the color was still a good dark purple, the aroma was very robust mix of blackberry, cherry cola and hints of camphor and leather. On the palate, a wonderful mix of black cherry, blackberry... Read More

    Lovely rich aromas of blackberry, violets, cassis and chocolate covered cherries. On the palate, dark berries and mocha with velvety, elegant tannins. Lush and rich with a noble feeling weight. Good balance, tasty and layered. 6/23/12 Read More

  • I get so caught up in work that I often neglect to check in here. I'm apologizing about that!  I'm back afer a few weeks in New Zealand, which sucks up all my time not only during the trip but for the weeks prior and, as it looks, most of the week after my return. Before you ask, new Zealand was great. A young wine industry but one that has made... Read More

  • Bennett Lane Carneros Reserve Chardonnay 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Nose has typical Chardonnary properties - butterscoth, apple, pear, almond. Palate is nutty with flavors of apple. Very smooth on the palate and finish. This is a crisp style and no overpowering oak behind it, but still soft and rounded the whole way through. Read More
