Bevan Cellars Sugarloaf Red Blend Napa Valley 2016
Sugarloaf Mountain Proprietary Red Wine. Wine Advocate has scored the last four vintages of this wine 100, 98+, 100, 99. The 2016 Sugarloaf is better than any of the previous vintages. Drop the mic, walk off. Good night.
“Very deep purple-black colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard (a barrel sample) gives up profoundly ripe, expressive black berry and cassis scents with underlying chocolate box and spice cake hints plus wafts of roses and dried herbs. Full-bodied, rich, ripe and full on full throttle when it comes to flavors, it has a firm, fine-grained backbone and an epically long finish.” – Wine Advocate (97-100)
