Bevan Cellars

Dry Stack Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2021

Slightly hazy (unfined and unfiltered) straw gold. Inviting nose and medium bodied palate of underripe quince, citrus rind, and balsam with a bit of extra "texture" (light tannin?) from the process. Medium acidity shows from entry to lengthy, lemony finish. Russell Bevan does it again. A luscious California SB treated like it's baby boy, CS, yields a white wine that's ready for fuller fare like roasted pork or fowl, swordfish or shark, or a melange of firm roots and greens. Not your mother's SB. Drink now through 2025. — 16 days ago

Grand Vin State Lane Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Flawless. This one gave me so much pleasure. Very well done. Not over the top or flamboyant. Just rich, velvety, layered and trustworthy. Wish I had an other bottle. — 22 days ago

Judge Family Vineyard Syrah 2015

Popped and poured. At this stage the 2015 Judge Family Syrah pours an opaque, ruby color with some obvious staining of the tears. On the nose, clean and youthful with developing vinosity. Stewed red and blue fruits, dark brambles, purple flowers, bacon fat, dry caked earth, stale potpourri, rotondun, and cigar box. On the palate, the wine is dry and all of the notes from the nose are confirmed and accompanied by dark bramble fruit with some chocolate and smoked meat. Tannins are medium+, acid is medium+…and so is alcohol. The finish is long and tart…but more like a SweetTart. This is a very sexy wine with everything in the right places and the moves to match.

Hi @Laura Purdy, all I did was pass this on from a close bud, @David L. Most of my white wine tips are jacked from him! 😉

First Class Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2018

We had the 2018 First Class PN on 8/3-4/22. The second night was much better. The mouth feel was nicely velvety. I agree with the taste of stewed fruits and baking spices. A good PN. — 12 days ago
