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 »

  • I'm planning to travel to Cali and on this trip I'm not looking for the famous wineries that everyone knows about and is always jam packed with people and tourists. I want an intimate setting, something off the road, where I'll be given some attention and be able to chat and enjoy my wine instead of being rushed. Any good suggestions from those ... Read More

  • Bennett Lane Maximus 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Flabby and non-descript, with very little fruit and an odd oleaginous texture (doubtless achieved by "tannin management"). Tastes somewhat downmarket. Read More

  • Bennett Lane Maximus 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Very interesting wine with a non-conventional blend. They use of Syrah is not typical of a meritage blend. The wine had aromas of plum and herbs. Taste was surprisingly complex with plum, current, with good balance. Read More

  • Bennett Lane Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Again, tasted at Snooth Blind Tasting ... Opaque, dense wine. First impression was that this was a Zinfandel from Dry Creek than a Cab from Napa. Definitely not a wine for me. It was big, jammy with sweetness. Read More

  • Bennett Lane Maximus 2005

    Snoothrank:

    My #2 wine of the 12 wine blind tasting - very Old World style - balanced, integrated, balanced. I really liked it and found it similar to a wine where the grapes were grown at altitude - lots of minerality and the acidity helped balance the fruitiness. A wine that would pair well with food.Tasted at the Snooth PTP California Cab blind tasting:h... Read More
