2018 Bevan "Sugarloaf Mountain" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1542446 99 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Another awesome blend by Russell, the 2018 Proprietary Red Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard is 55% Cabernet Franc and 45% Merlot, and it’s one of the more overtly sexy, opulent wines in the lineup. Offering a crazy perfume of lifted red and blue fruits, spring flowers, and incense, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a supple, seamless, mouth-filling texture, sweet tannins, and a blockbuster of a finish.

Outer quote mark Sugarloaf is a relatively new, cooler site in south Napa, above a quarry. It usually allows for a longer hang time, often lending a minty or herbal lift to this label. Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 Proprietary Red Sugarloaf Mountain—a blend of 60% Cabernet Franc and 40% Merlot—is a little closed to begin, offering glimpses at chocolate-covered cherries, mulberries and Provence herbs notes before bursting into vibrant scents of redcurrant jelly, wild blueberries, black raspberries and coffee grounds plus and hint of pencil shavings. The full-bodied palate is charged with electric red, black and blue fruited vivacity, framed by finely grained tannins and fantastic tension, finishing long and minerally. This gorgeous wine has so much infectious energy, it practically tingles on your tongue! (LPB) 97+ Inner quote mark (2/2021)

Outer quote mark The 2018 Red Wine Sugarloaf Mountain is magnificent. Soaring in its intensity, the 2018 exudes tremendous concentration and a level of aromatic breadth that carries through to the finish. All the elements come together so effortlessly. The 2018 is a must-have for Bevan fans. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2021)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A bold, rich, expressive style, brimming with ripe, juicy blackberry, wild berry, currant and plum flavors, revealing a carpet of intense, supple tannins and a pretty scent of mocha and vanilla bean. (JL) Inner quote mark (5/2015)
