2002 Behrens & Hitchcock Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard

Oakville more

5/25/2015 - johnwine Likes this wine: 92 points

This wine is approaching its maturity. The nose is open and opulent with scents of roses and dark cherries. The taste is velvety on the palate with flavors of chocolate covered cherries, kirsch, a hint of cigar box and wild mushrooms. Drink now!

The fruit is still very present for 15 years of age. Surprisingly fresh. Tannins have softened and interested nicely. Hide the 15.2 alcohol beautifully. Great bottle but drink up, not getting any better than this.

Second bottle went down tonight. Just as lovely as the first. This wine is showing much more green pepper and clove. Rather vegetal, but not over the top. Finished with a 60+ second finish. Beautiful wine. This wine has aged rather flawlessly, but I'm honestly not sure it really has the depth to last more than a few years from now. Drinking ***WELL*** tonight. A great accoutrement to dinner and after hours wind-down. Drink now to 2018.

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.

Opened and let it breath in the bottle for about 4 hours before drinking. Very dark in color. Nice fragrant nose. Plenty of fruit on the front and mid-palate. Nice long finish. This is a great wine. Has still has plenty of legs left to drink over the next 3-5 years, but drinking great now also.

2004 Behrens & Hitchcock Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Kenefick Ranch

Napa Valley more

5/3/2015 - hautbrion Likes this wine: 94 points

Really drinking well. Decanted for about 3 hours. Nose and taste were very attractive immediately out of the cellar, but really got rolling by the time we drank it. Enticing nose with tobacco & leather. Lots of ripe fruit, very juicy. Mature, mouth-filling flavors with a good long finish. Lots to like.

Fully mature, but not showing any signs of fading. Fruit still really strong.

5/2/2015 - nfafoglia Likes this wine: 93 points

Nose of lavender, licorice, spearmint, strawberry, and cream. On the palate it is a hedonistic experience of creamy fruit with a finish of spice. Drinking very well right now.

1999 Behrens & Hitchcock Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Vineyard

Oakville more

4/1/2015 - JBVino wrote: NR

I am about as negative on B&H wines given I have enjoyed a bottle or two out of many. 90% of their wines are overdone, stewed fruit and alcohol driven.

However after this bottle and other note maybe they have a ton of bottle variation as well. This bottle while was still in a more new world style it did not cross over the line. It had good balance, length, texture and some secondary flavors. Now my expectations for this bottle were minimal at best but objectively thought this bottle was pretty darn solid.

2002 Behrens & Hitchcock Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard

Oakville more

4/24/2015 - Thirsty1 Likes this wine: NR

This was the oldest bottle of To-kalon at the table. Had a little funky/musty start that blew off quick. It was still a baby of a wine with many years a head of it. Stewed black berry but not much secondary notes. Fruity yet a little mature, about what you may expect. Heavy mid pallet and long finish. Great bottle.

Yes, bottle consumed in November apparently damaged by improper storage conditions (misplaced -- not in the cellar, 'cooked' in warm garage). This bottle very balanced, a perfect foil for beef ribeye and portobello mushrooms to inaugurate new grill.

Agree with many of the notes below, fruit forward and lush. Not showing any age. Notes of blueberries, cassis and what I can only describe as funk, but not obtrusive. Has a lot of life ahead.

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.

Brought to Chaine "dine-around" event at Phoenician Taverna in Mason. No formal note. Overall impression: dark opaque purple. Nose of dark fruit and leather. Ripe, full palate of blackberry, blueberry, hoisin, pepper, and espresso. Excellent length. Sweet tannins. Integrated oak. Unusual blend that is predominantly Syrah. Everyone who tried it liked it.

Very much a new world fruit bomb in profile, and yet there is much going on here. Next to the blackberry, raspberry and red currant, there is some licorice, herb and even leather.

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.
