Bevan Ontogeny Propietary Red 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
This is a mix of all of our big boy vineyards and two small special vineyards that give this wine life. I use several press barrels from Tin Box, Tench and Wildfoote, which have chewy, vibrant textures. I worry that I might be making a beast, so I throw in a little kiss of Sugarloaf merlot, which pulls everything back together. It reminds me more of the 2009 than any of the other vintages, as it has so much power and richness at the same time.
