Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

(79% cabernet sauvignon, 11% cabernet franc, 8% petit verdot and 2% malbec): Moderately saturated ruby-red. Enticing aromas of dark berries, dark chocolate, cocoa powder, mint and spices. Showy and broad, but with an edge of acidity giving shape to the black raspberry and exotic brown spice flavors. Finishes with an herbal complexity and a firm tannic spine. Francoise Peschon (long-time winemaker for Araujo Estate) and Lisa Drinkward (the wife of Les Behrens) have been making this wine from the same vineyard source (the Blossom Creek vineyard north of Calistoga, which is under the same ownership as Turnbull Wine Cellars) since 2001.

The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Entre Deux Meres wraps around the palate with serious depth and power. Plums, mocha, espresso and spices all jump from the glass in this sexy, voluptuous wine. Round, sweet and inviting, the 2008 Entre Deux Meres captures the best qualities of the year. Although not super-complex, the 2008 is flat out delicious and incredibly appealing.

Wonderful nose of black fruits with a bit of soft spice. On first sip, currant and blackberry with some earth, well balanced and fruit is very focused and pure on the palate. Continuing, dark fruits are approachable, tannins are well-integrated though a dustiness clearly shows through. Tobacco, vanilla and a hint of oak. Rich and full-bodied, but elegant nonetheless. All combine for a lingering finish that lasts for 30+ seconds with really nice grip. What gets me with each Drinkward Peschon is the clairity, purity and focus of the fruit. This is not near its peak yet and I suspect will be at its best starting in 3 years and lasting for another 15-20 yrs. Also, the price is incredible for this quality. A definitely cellar favorite.

About This Producer


Beginning with the 2000 vintage, Lisa Drinkward and Francoise Peschon, friends and mothers, began creating what was soon to become a major classic in the annals of Napa Valley startups. Both partners came in with excellent credentials - Drinkward, viticulturist at Behrens & Hitchcock (now known as Erna Schein), and Peschon, winemaker at Araujo (she recently transitioned to a consultant position there). Sourcing their fruit from small family-owned vineyards in Calistoga and producing no more than 500 cases, the pair dispels the myth that you need a sophisticated marketing plan and a fancy tasting room to compete in Napa Valley. If anything, their model is emulated more and more. Critics have been following it for a few years and there never seems to be enough to go around.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
