2013 Bevan Cellars The Impetus

Estate: Bevan Cellars
Region: Napa Valley, California, United States of America
Vineyards: De Crescenzo and Tench Vineyards

Tasting Note:January 20, 2017

Deep purplish red. After an hour or so in the decanter this was still tight with green notes and a little black cherries. Finally on day two there were tons of 'Bevan' fruits, black and blue with tons of cinnamon and vanilla. Heavy tannins (8/10) and full bodied. This lost a little bit of weight in the mid palate but beefed up on day two. Tons of structure and dark cherries on day one with a slightly stoney and savory finish. Day two brought in the same characteristics as the nose, tons of blue and black fruits as well as cinnamon and vanilla. A touch of heat in the long finish that should dissipate with time. Should be in a sweet spot in about 7 years or so.

Delicious Bordeaux blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Cabernet Franc.
