Back in 1995, when Victoria and I started dating in Des Moines, our favorite game was “Guess the Wine.” We would take turns bringing a blind wine and make the other person guess the varietal and region. When I look back on those dates, there is little mystery about how we arrived where we are today. Soon after that, we moved to Minneapolis and fell in with a group of wine lovers whose passion and knowledge fanned our flame. We started taking regular trips to wine country in California, where we met many of the finest winemakers. We were so inspired by them that to this day we follow many of their principles. We learned first-hand about Philip Togni’s attention to every minute detail…. Saw how Bob Foley would only pick fruit if his palate -- not some lab test -- told him it was time… Heard Greg La Follette telling us how careful you have to be when making decisions in the winery because even the smallest decision has an impact on the final wine. Our conversations still reverberate with me whether Read more »

  • Bevan Cellars Ontogeny Oakville 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Not as Earth-shattering as the 2008 but still an excellent wine. I don't know how he gets his wines to drink so well so early without seeming to lose any structure or complexity. The wine was very bright, lots of red currants and black raspberries. Read More

  • Bevan Cellars Ontogeny Oakville 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Another knockout Bevan Cellars wine. There's Kirsch, dried herbs, oaky vanilla, cocoa plus a bit of smoke develops as the wine aerates. This is Bevan's drink now wine and as such has just enough tannin to maintain structure but not enough to overwhelm the freshness of the wine. The texture is like chocolate wrapped in velvet and the finish goe... Read More

  • Bevan Cellars Sauvignon Blanc Oakville 2010

    Snoothrank:

    On my short list of best Sauv Blancs I've yet to try. An amazing array of layers and flavors. At the same time bright and lively but also (due to part of the wine aged in neutral oak) a creamy texture in the middle. The wine shows flavors from key lime and grapefruit to pineapple and kiwi with hints of fresh cut grass. Truly lovely! Read More

  • Bevan Cellars Merlot Oakville Alexis' Cuvée Showket Vineyards 2008

    Snoothrank:

    I would put this wine on the short list of best merlots out there today. Deep, unctuous texture, explosive blackberry fruit, whispers of vanilla oak, oh and I think someone might of thrown a bar of high quality dark chocolate into the barrel while no one was looking because there's chocolate and more chocolate in this wine. Absolutely wonderful! Read More
