Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 90

($60; includes 10% cabernet franc and 4% merlot) Good full ruby. Aromas of cassis, violet, lead pencil, bitter chocolate and mint. Very dense and concentrated, with superripe but fresh flavors of violet and chocolate. Finishes with full but nicely integrated tannins. This has turned out well, but the 2002 will be even stronger.

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.
