We are proud to offer a line up of six wines from this outstanding young winery which produced their first vintage in 2005. Our lineup includes the perfect scoring (100 point rating from Robert Parker Jr.) 2012 Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard Proprietary Red, 2010 Oscar Sugarloaf Vineyard Proprietary Red, 2012 Ontogeny Proprietary Red (99 points – R.P. Jr.), 2012 EE cuvee (99 points – R.P. Jr.), 2012 Ritchie Chardonnay, & 2012 Petaluma Gap Pinot Noir. With three perfect scores in the last two years, this is surely one of California’s most impressive wineries!
“As I wrote last year, Russell Bevan and his partner, Victoria de Cresenzo, are turning out truly mind-blowing, big, rich, majestic wines. Bevan Cellars has hit the bull’s eye with a bevy of incredible efforts that showcases fabulous vineyard sources. Many of these have not been exploited by others. A warning though – these are super-rich, dense, powerful, massive wines. While the tannins are elevated, they are silky and well-integrated, and the wines are neither heavy nor overbearing. Nor is Bevan afraid of alcohol, but he never goes over-the-top. The bottled 2012s have all seen about 75% new Taransaud French oak barrels and the rest tend to be either Gamba or Darnajou, the latter probably the most difficult high-quality barrel to obtain because of the small production.”
