The 2017 Tench Vineyard 'The Calixtro' is a total knockout from Bevan, and looks to be the most impressive of Bevan’s three wines out of Tench in this vintage. This stunning Cabernet Sauvignon opens to absolutely seductive aromatics of ripe blueberries, blackcurrants and dark cherries, which are woven together with fresh violets, graphite, herbs, stony minerals and an earthy character that take it to another level. On the palate this is full-bodied and incredibly concentrated, with dense layers of ripe dark and blue fruits that resonate throughout. This magnificent Cabernet Sauvignon continues to impress with its stunning combination of power and finesse, as it gracefully comes to an end with a gorgeous supple finish that leaves behind a generous mouthful of delicious ripe fruit flavors that linger on and on. An absolutely sensational wine from Russell Bevan in this vintage that should have a tremendous future, but is nothing short of ridiculously delicious now.
