The 2010 Ontogeny is one of the more compact wines in this lineup. It has good depth and presence but not the personality or silkiness of the best wines here. Sweet red berries, crushed flowers and menthol add complexity on the finish. In this vintage the Ontogeny is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petite Verdot and 5% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.

2nd wine from Bevan. In honor of parker release of Napa '10. Dark red core with deep ruby edges. Nose is graphite, black currants, loamy earth and good spice, barely a trace of oak. The palate is full bodied with medium to mostly full bodied, but ripe tannins. Light on its feet but fully concentrated this is a beaute!
Great value wine.
