2002 Behrens & Hitchcock Les Chats du Monde

Estate: Behrens Family Winery

Region: Napa Valley, California, United States of America


Tasting Note:March 26, 2016

Was super excited to crack this open! Wine was ruby red and dark at the core. Nose had us really worried, with a ton of prunes, glue, whiskey and slightly medicinal. The surprise and what saved this was the palate. Moderate tannins (6.5/10) and moderate plus body. Palate was very complex with notes of dark cherries and something similar to creme de cassis but darker, and solid acidity. Long finish of dark cherries. Would love to try some of their younger wines!

This is a blend of 48% Syrah, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 14% Merlot.
