Community Tasting Notes 4

    April 9, 2019 - This is very serious, brooding, well structured and surprisingly tannic wine from Mr. Bevan. At the outset I will say my advice is to wait some time before popping the cork.

    Scorched earth, char, charcuterie, black cherry, blackberries, fragrant earth and lot of floral. Full bodied, dense, layered, a bit chalky, spicy and very tannic, this is not terribly well resolved at the moment, but holds a ton of potential. Wafts of blue and red fruit, with tons of herbal and earthy elements hit the pallet with loads of progressive energy. Big time structure and super long if a bit biting finish at the moment. Acid is really good, and this promises to be one of the longer lived Bevan wines. I would guess in 3-5 years this monster should be hitting its stride.

    August 5, 2018 - Bevan 2017 barrel samples and 2016 wines: Day 2 for this bottle. More exposure to air really brought out a deepening of the flavors and allowed for some of the fatty booze to blow off. Richer and deeper, with sappy red and black raspberry, extracted black cherry, cassis, dehydrated strawberry, and spice. I bumped this up a point. Promising and powerful juice with great acid and structure. Previous note applies otherwise.

    August 4, 2018 - Sine Qua Non (SQN) Magnum Extravaganza + Bevan, Mike Smith, Sparkling/Champagne, and others (Calistoga): A gorgeous and massive frontal attack of black and purple core fruit, with black raspberry, bitter chocolate, dark cassis, and spice notes. Similar to the ‘16 EE served beside it, but with less overt alcohol than the EE. The Sugarloaf certainly has its share of baby fat and booze that it’ll need to shed before it can become a contributing member of society, but it was a hair less bombastic than the EE in its current state.

    Give the Sugarloaf a few years to settle down. These Bevan wines are huge in 2016. They have phenomenal stuffing (especially the Wildfoote), and should morph into captivating wines shortly down the road. Hold until 2021+. 95-96++ points.

    May 11, 2018 - Completely coats the glass with dark ruby veins. Rich nose dark spices and black fruits. Heavy tannins (8/10) with a full body. Layered palate with blackberries, spices and a touch of oak. Long and lingering finish. Drink from 2019 till 2039. (93-96)
