Winemaker's Notes

A blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, this wine is probably the most serious wine Bevan Cellars has released to date. Last years Double E always had a beautiful round quality to it, that made it approachable and rich, but this wine has a steel rod for a back bone. It isn't hard, but it's natural acidity gives it a firm quality, no one will taste this and think it is a play toy, it grabs your attention. Dark fruit flavors dominate, but the Franc expresses itself as hints of tobacco and spice. Cellar it for a year and you should be very pleased. I wish we could hold this wine for a year then release it to "wow's," but we can't, we will trust that you will.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Red Wine EE Cuvee Showket Vineyard flows onto the palate with sweet roses, spices, flowers, all of which come together in a forward, juicy style meant to be enjoyed over the next few years. Floral notes round out the textured finish. This is another soft, totally inviting wine from Russell Bevan. The EE Cuvee is 50% Cabernet Franc and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2017."

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
