    Winemaker Notes

    2016 was the first vintage where Sonoma had normal rainfall in many years and no serious heat spikes, like there were in 12, 13, 14 and 15. This excellent weather, allowed Bevan Cellars to harvest everything at a perfect level of flavor and textural development. Winemaker Russell Bevan saw this as an opportunity to pick the Sauvignon Blanc vineyard twice. The first pick was of all of the plants that had a lower than average crop size, because of this they developed a little faster and the smaller grapes had amazing intensity. The second pick, which happened considerably later, had an average sized crop and the additional hang time provided a much more tropical flavor profile.

    The final blend has the “in your face” intensity of the first pick, but it gives way to the tropical qualities, from the second pick, that is a hallmark of Bevan Cellars' past Sauvignon Blancs. This wine displays more minerality, density and attitude, than previous vintages.

    Back in 1995, when Victoria and Russell Bevan started dating in Des Moines, their favorite game was "Guess the Wine." They would take turns bringing a blind wine and make the other person guess the varietal and region. When Bevan looks back on those dates, there is little mystery about how they arrived where they are today.

    Soon after that, the couple moved to Minneapolis and fell in with a group of wine lovers whose passion and knowledge fanned their flame. They started taking regular trips to wine country in California, where they met many of the finest winemakers. They were so inspired by them that to this day they follow many of their principles. They 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. They heard Greg La Follette telling them how careful you have to be when making decisions in the winery because even the smallest decision has an impact on the final wine. Their conversations still reverberate with them whether the couple is at a vineyard or in the winery.

    Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
