- It's in total harmony and has flavours of dusty and black pepper with a medium/full body. Silky texture with a long finish.

2010 Behrens Family Winery Labor of Love

Napa Valley Cabernet Franc more

5/8/2015 - davidandrose Likes this wine: 93 points

1/3 bottle via corvin so air time limited. Great blue aromas upon release, along with tar, vanilla and tight oak. Has unusual heft for a cab franc blend, with dusty tannins that envelop the palate in a silky way. Blue fruit hides behind blackberry; has the depth of mountain fruit. Great CF blend that should last until 2020+ but really approachable right out of the bottle.

2011 Behrens Family Winery The Collector

Napa Valley Red Blend more

4/23/2015 - archie18 Likes this wine: 92 points

The Collector is back with a brand new label, and the 2011 edition is an intriguing blend of Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromas of tobacco and loam meld with vanilla, cherry and black fruits. There is a lush and savory quality to this wine that is focused with great acidity and expands with a mouthful of black currant, allspice and cassis. We held off on the release of this wine for a year while it hit it’s stride, but now we find it deep, rich and truly satisfying.

2012 Behrens Family Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Homeland

Napa Valley more

4/23/2015 - archie18 wrote: 92 points

Get ready for the premiere of Homeland. A candy-cherry nose, loaded with floral, black plum and licorice notes, this powerful and lively wine is balanced with a firm tannin structure. Blackberry jam, raspberry and graphite minerality extend into the lengthy finish. We have worked for years with this vineyard, north of Napa town, which is also the Merlot source for our Frontman. We are happy to create this expressive Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and to call it Homeland.

2012 Behrens Family Winery Sainte Fumée

California Red Blend more

4/23/2015 - archie18 wrote: 90 points

The 2012 Sainte Fumée is a bigger, richer version of her previous counterparts. Always a fan favorite, this wine exhibits aromas of white pepper, roses and caramelized sugar. Deep flavors of cherry cordial and cocoa powder are lifted by a firm and tannic structure. Big and expressive with loads of perfume, Sainte Fumée just might be your “go to” summer bottle.

Decanted this for about 3 hours before drinking and thought this was a great wine. bit of alcohol on opening but really settled down after long decant. Very full bodied, full throttle cab that wasn't overbearing or heavy. Lots of spice and cedar and dark fruit/berries with a nice long finish.

2009 Behrens Family Winery Another Roadside Attraction

11/30/2014 - Redrunners Likes this wine: 92 points

A nice bordeaux blend that is a blend of 42% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot, 7% Petite Sirah.

Gave this a couple of hour decant. Smooth tannins with black cherry, vanilla and spice. Good acid balance.

Nice wine for the money. Glad I have a couple of more bottles to try when they have some more age.

2011 Behrens Family Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Spare Me

12/31/2014 - carisua78 Likes this wine: 90 points

Good wine - only observation is that at $55 there are a lot of other good candidates. It was a hard vintage but they did a good job with the spare me. At the core there is acidity; interesting to see how it would evolve with cellar time. This wine offers a deep, rich mix of dark berries and end with a long persistent finish.

2011 Behrens Family Winery The Knockout

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon more

12/22/2014 - archie18 wrote: NR

There is a reason we call this wine “The Knockout”. Full-bodied and luscious with great structure, it has beautiful aromas of violets and black cherry pie. Flavors of dark fruits – plum and blueberry, extend through the finish. Built to go the distance, it will also be eminently satisfying in its youth.

The 2011, 90% Napa Cabernet and 10% Petit Verdot, is once again approachable and satisfying. Bright, deep ruby/purple in color, it expresses violets, white pepper and black raspberry on the nose. This densely-packed and energetic wine exhibits lively tannins balanced by sweet notes of chocolate-covered blueberries, cedar and warm blackberries. The juicy finish is plush and lingers with just a hint of clove. This one is “in the pocket”.

2011 Behrens Family Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Cemetery

Napa Valley more

12/22/2014 - archie18 wrote: NR

A perennial favorite, from the Cemetery Vineyard in St. Helena, which has always thrilled us, and the 2011 vintage is no exception. It is classic Cabernet Sauvignon. Beautifully deep, yet vibrant ruby in color, it boasts aromas of cedar and rich earth, with notes of anise and clove. Juicy and supple with well-integrated tannins, this seamless wine is smooth and generous with creamy cassis and bitter chocolate flavors long into the lingering finish. According to Les, a wine perfectly suited to enjoy while contemplating life.

We love movies. We loved Roger Ebert. In April 2013, about the time we were putting this blend together and working on the label, we heard of his passing. This is our tribute to him. Featuring aromas of vanilla, cedar and orchids, this action-packed wine plays to loads of blue fruits, bitter chocolate and focused minerality. Silky, plush and broad on the mid palate, it is perfectly balanced from the opening credits to the satisfying finish - a full-length work, destined to be a classic. The balcony is closed.

Of course its young . Big , bright and delicious. The tannins and the fruit are seamlessly integrated to produce an opulent , but not over the top, example of California Cabernet that works perfectly for my taste.

Purple in color, with aromas and flavors of dried fruit, plum, prune, currant, and spice, and black cherry.

Not as tannic as the WS review would make you think, this cab sported relatively smooth tannins yet was full bodied. Slightly drying on the finish. Drinking well now, and should hold for at least 5 years.
Me - 92, Wife - 93.
