A bold, rich, expressive style, brimming with ripe, juicy blackberry, wild berry, currant and plum flavors, revealing a carpet of intense, supple tannins and a pretty scent of mocha and vanilla bean. Cabernet Franc and Merlot.

Another perfect wine is Bevan's equal part blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the 2012 Proprietary Red Sugarloaf Mountain. Notes of unsmoked cigar tobacco, forest floor, pen ink mulberries, blackberries and spring flowers soar from this inky/purple-colored 2012. The wine possesses great intensity, remarkable unctuosity and thickness, and perfect integration of acidity, alcohol, tannin and wood. Aged in equal parts new Gamba and Darnajou barrels, there are 225 cases of this fabulous wine. Drink now-2032.
