2008 Bevan "Double E's Cuvée Showket Vineyard" Oakville Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1096061 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Another wine from the Showket Vineyard, and a proprietary blend at that, is the 2008 Double-E, an equal-part blend of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Ths wine borders on perfection, but don’t get too excited, there’s not a lot of it. Extraordinary notes of blueberries, acacia flowers, tobacco leaf, cassis, licorice, and crushed rocks all soar from the glass of this inky purple wine. Fabulous concentration, full-bodied texture and ethereal intensity without heaviness make for a provocative and compellingly great wine from Russell Bevan. The finish goes on for a good 45+ seconds. This is graceful, stunning wine that caught me by total surprise in its greatness. (RP)  (12/2010)

97 points Wine Spectator

 An extraordinary wine, gorgeous from start to finish. Offers captivating character of ripe dark fruits, currant, blackberry, kirsch, mocha, cedar, graphite, tar and more. Full-blown, beautifully structured, pure and persistent, sailing along gracefully, with a tremendous aftertaste. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2025. (JL)  (10/2011)

K&L Notes

The Showket vineyard in Oakville has since been sold to Peter Michael, but Russell Bevan's wines from this site helped propel him from dental products salesman to one of Napa Valley's most respected winemakers.
