2015 Behrens Sainte Fumee

2015 Behrens Sainte Fumee


With the usual foundation of syrah and a hefty dose of grenache, the 2015 Sainte Fumée is loaded with all of the intriguing, exotic characteristics that we have come to expect. Starfruit, orchid, and pine needle aromas abound, and juicy flavors of raspberry, black pepper and teriyaki play in. Soft tannins and a lively acidity keep this beauty balanced and focused. Yes, it is the perfect back yard cookout wine, but there is no need to wait for summer!

38% Syrah, 24% Grenache, 10% Cinsault, 10% Petite Sirah, 10% Tempranillo, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon

Vinous Media, December 2018 (94 points) – Antonio Galloni
The 2015 Sainte Fumée is a heady wine. Syrah flavors of black pepper, game, smoke, spice and leather are front and center. Rich, deep and explosive, the 2015 hits the palate with tremendous density and pure power, while a backbone of firm tannin gives the wine persistence to match.
