(blended with a bit of cabernet franc) Full ruby. Very dark aromas of black cherry, black cherry, black licorice, violet and bitter chocolate. Juicy, tight and currently rather folded in on itself. But sweet rather than dry, with an herbal rather than vegetal complexity. This has the intensity and sweetness of fruit to buffer its bright acids and firm tannins.

About This Producer


The husband and wife duo of Lisa Drinkward and Les Behrens got their start with their award-winning restaurant, Folie Douce in Arcata, California. When loyal clientele Joe Bob Hitchcock and his wife Lily learned of Les' thoughts of winemaking, the couple decided to put up some capital to join him in his endeavor. The first 175 cases were produced in 1993, and grew to 750 over the next three years. In 1997, the vineyard moved from Arcata to Napa Valley, where Behrens & Hitchcock eventually decided to purchase acreage on Spring Mountain. The team worked hard to produce its first single-vineyard wines during the 1999 harvest. Today the winery is seemingly an overnight success, producing single-lot Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Petite Syrah of outstanding quality.
