NAPA VALLEY, CALIFORNIA 2015

 

 

"Russell Bevan is one of the more outspoken producers in Napa Valley, and so are his wines. These sumptuous, beautifully textured reds are full of personality. Made to be accessible right upon release, the Bevan wines are rich, intense and hugely delicious.” – Robert Parker

 

A source of ultra-premium wines from the finest vineyards in Napa and Sonoma, Bevan Cellars has made their way onto the Napa Valley cult wine scene in just a few years, scoring 98-100 points with every successive vintage. As tremendous scores have rolled in for his 2015 vintage – today we are featuring this spectacular follow up to their 2012 and 2013 succeess with the 2015 Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard Proprietary Red. Coming in at 98+ points – this wine is intense, powerful and unapologetically opulent. Since their first vintage in 2005, they’ve focused on fruit from premium sources, and learned the ropes from the best in the business, including Greg Follette and Kal Showket. Not only is Russell Bevan now known in his own right, he followed up Heidi Barrett as winemaker for Showket Vineyard and Luc Morlet as winemaker at Chateau Bosewell. As he continues to work with phenomenal vineyard sites throughout the Valley, under his own label, today’s wine is a true showcase for the spectacular terroir of Sugarloaf Mountain and an “equal follow-up to the perfect 2014.”(RP)

 

This special site is located between several prominent vineyards run by Joseph Phelps and Cakebread Cellars. Situated at the southern end of Napa Valley on an exposed spine of volcanic rock that extends from the south of the Vaca Mountains, this Basaltic Igneous rock was created 7 million years ago by volcanic activity between the North American tectonic plates. With only 24 inches of topsoil, the growing environment is challenging, yet with meticulous farming and respectful guardianship of the land, the wines produced are remarkable. With volcanic rock lying just below the shallow topsoil – the land acts as a giant solar panel, collecting heat throughout the day and into the night. This captured heat moderates the temperature, allowing for ideal ripening and hang time. While maintaining a remarkable approachability in its youth, the wine offers incredible complexity and intensity that is still capable to cellar for many years.
