Wine Critic Reviews:

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Harbison Vineyard exhibits phenomenal intensity and precision as well as oodles of blackberry, blueberry and cassis fruit intertwined with licorice, coffee bean, chocolate and truffle. This is an amazing full-bodied, multidimensional wine. Drink 2016-2035.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 100 RP
An explosive, powerful wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Harbison Vineyard hits the palate with serious depth and intensity. Black cherry jam, mocha, espresso, spice, new leather and menthol are meld into the huge, powerful finish. The Harbison is all about density, power and voluptuousness, all qualities the 2013 has in spades. Mocha, plum and espresso notes reappear to round things out in style.

Vinous Media | 97 VM
Rich and vivid, offering juicy blackberry and currant notes. This is elegant and refined, showing uncommon finesse for a wine this rich and layered. Glides along on the aftertaste, with fine-grained tannins woven throughout. Drink now through 2028. 100 cases made.

Country US: As one of the most prolific and innovative wine regions in the world, America is a joy to explore. Most wine connoisseurs will agree that the nation's finest and most compelling wines are being produced today, which means that we have front-row seats to one of the most inspirational stories in wine history. While other regions tend to focus on specific wine styles and have somewhat strict rules as to which varietals you could grow, areas like California have few such restrictions in place. As a result, creative visionaries behind America's most reputable estates have been able to develop compelling, unique, and innovative styles, with a level of terroir expression that rivals even France's largest giants.
Producer Bevan: When a producer receives several 100-point scores from legendary wine critic Robert Parker, all doubts surrounding the quality of their drink are washed away, like a twig in mountain rapids. Bevan Cellars uses primarily Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon as their varietals of choice. The winery's reputation grows by the year, which may encourage the entrepreneurs among you to invest in their finest bottles as early as possible - they're already somewhat difficult to obtain. Should you decide to uncork and sample a bottle from Bevan Cellars, a spark deep within your soul will erupt into a veritable wildfire of pleasure and satisfaction, as your palate is treated to a surging wave of intense, full-bodied flavor. The wines are incredibly powerful, but their elegance makes them highly approachable, especially while they're young.

Region California: With a history of wine production that dates back to the 18th century, California currently sits as one of the world's most prolific and reputable wine regions. With an area as vast as California, you can expect a colorful collage of terroir profiles, a series of microclimates, and micro-environments that give the wine a unique, memorable appeal. The region's produce is far from homogenized in that sense, and it would take you countless hours to sample all of it. While the region boasts scars from the Prohibition era, it went through what can only be described as a viticultural Renaissance sometime after the 1960s. At that point, California went from a port-style, sweet wine region to a versatile and compelling competitor on the world market. Today, no matter which way your taste in wine leans, you can find a new favorite producer among California's most talented. Notable sub-regions include legendary names like Napa Valley and Sonoma County, places that any wine lover would die to visit. California's quintessential warm climate allows for incredibly ripe fruit expressions, a style that provides a stark contrast to Old World-inspired, earthy classics. Even where inspiration was clearly taken from staple French appellations, Californian winemakers put their own unique spin on the wine.
Type of Wine California Red: Whether it's Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah or Zinfandel, Californian red wine producers have a lovely habit of taking a varietal and expressing its essence in a unique, never before seen way. From Napa Valley to the regions south of Los Angeles, there's a red for everyone - and it's never too late to start exploring.
