This new offering comes from Russell Bevan's own Saunders Vineyard in Oakville. The vineyard borders Dalla Valle and Oakville Ranch on the eastern hillsides of the Vaca range. With its prime location combined with Russell's winemaking skills, this Cabernet Sauvignon is just starting to hit its stride. Notes of blackcurrants, roasted coffee & graphite immediately fill the glass. It is "full-bodied, powerful, and stacked on the palate, with a fabulous mid-palate. It's another seriously good 2017 from this estate that's going to check in near the top of the vintage." 2005 was Bevan's first vintage and since that time, he and partner, Victoria DeCrescenzo have been working to create not just a wine brand, but also acquire vineyards like Saunders and are now partnered with Tench Vineyard where they recently built their own winery.
