    Notably rich and juicy, with tiers of blackberry, dusty earth and black licorice, showing cedar-scented tannins that impart a measure of refinement. Ends slightly trim, offering savory herb and dusty earth notes. Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

    Rich, opulent and voluptuous - with no hard edges and exceptional balance - the 2013 Proprietary Red Sugarloaf Mountain wraps around the palate with serious depth and intensity. Sweet red cherry, plum, mocha, spice and wild flowers meld together effortlessly. A blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot, the Sugarloaf takes over all the senses with its heady richness and unctuousness.

    The last two 2013s I tasted included the 2013 Proprietary Red Sugarloaf Mountain. This fabulous and exciting elixir is a equal-part blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot aged in equal parts Gamba and Darnajou, all new French oak. A stunning nose of forest floor, blueberry, blackberry, mulberry and spring flowers soars from the glass of this inky purple wine. Another offering of great intensity, with voluptuous texture and lavish, almost extravagant fruit richness, this pure, rich and incredibly well-made wine is yet more proof that Bevan is a genius on so many levels, as he can produce compelling wines whether they are Bordeaux varietals, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc or even Chardonnay.

  • California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
