The Bevan’s 2012 wine is a Vixen vineyard, a good choice, as it’s all about pureness, and excellent quality berry fruit, the very basis for any good wine.
Grown in Stags Leap District, Wildfoote Vineyard Vixen Block, this Cabernet Sauvignon is awesome.
The wine is intense, it has enormous concentration of black cherry fruit, a good clean taste softened by tannins with an extra roundness. This wine has power, it grabs your attention, a “herculean wine plenty of Napa’s finesse” 🙂 I loved tasting it.
I think this wine will become a great cellar keeper, aging will help improve this wine making it one of the top 2012 wines from Napa.
Makes sure to decant this wine well in advance for aeration.
