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 »

  • Bennett Lane Maximus 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Intensely aromatic if a bit raw woody, but with layers of aromas ranging from a bloody, gamey and spicy Asian Duck tone to nice green herbal scents with an anise seed edge to them. Later, with air there are floral tones and spicy black fruit notes. Sweet fruit attack followed by a bit of clumsy weight. This needs some time to better integrate th... Read More

  • Bennett Lane Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Intense, and a bit over-oaky but with really assertive crème de cassis and jammy black berry fruit over a flush of ripe herb, eucalyptus and chili notes. Rich yet very suave with a very peppery attack that leads to a mouth filling mid-palate that is marred by the austere tannins. While the acidity is not assertive it is exceptionally well integr...
