2015 Behrens Family Labour of Love

2015 Behrens Family Labour of Love


The source of this gorgeous Cabernet Franc blend is Henry and Mayra Martinez’s spectacular vineyard on famed Pritchard Hill – one of our favorite spots in all of the Napa Valley. Legendary for producing powerful wines of great substance, this location always delivers. The 2015 Labor of Love is deep ruby red with an intriguing nose of white pepper, fresh herbs and cassis. Plum and black raspberry flavors are balanced with more savory, meaty notes. Great concentration, structure and firm tannins lend support through to the long dusty cocoa finish. This one goes straight to the senses – heady and soulful. What’s not to love?

68% Cabernet Franc, 16% Petit Verdot, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2015 Cabernet Franc Labor Of Love is gorgeous, and one of my favorites in the lineup. Cassis, spring flowers, distinct minerality, and hints of chocolate all emerge from this medium to full-bodied beauty. Possessing ripe, present tannin, a focused, elegant personality, and plenty of exuberance, it's going to drink nicely for 15+ years or more.
