2015 Bevan Cellars Ontogeny Proprietary Red

125.00

95pts Robert Parker

Composed of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Petit Verdot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Ontogeny Proprietary Red Wine gives a gorgeous nose of spice box, violets and mocha with a core of crème de cassis, ripe plums and black cherries plus a touch of underbrush. Full-bodied, ripe and expressive, it is beautifully open for business right now with a soft, approachable texture and a long, spicy finish. 700 cases produced.

winemaker's notes

"This is a mix of all of our big boy vineyards and two small special vineyards that give this wine life. I use several press barrels from Tin Box, Tench and Wildfoote, which have chewy, vibrant textures. I worry that I might be making a beast, so I throw in a little kiss of Sugarloaf merlot, which pulls everything back together. It reminds me more of the 2009 than any of the other vintages, as it has so much power and richness at the same time."
