The Winery

Bevan Cellars

“Russell Bevan is one of the more outspoken producers in the Napa Valley, and so are his wines. These sumptuous, beautifully textured reds are full of personality. Made to be accessible right upon release, the Bevan wines are rich, intense, and hugely delicious.”
–Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Since their first vintage in 2005, Russell Bevan and Victoria de Crescenzo have made sure that the focus of Bevan Cellars is on the vineyards that they source their fruit from. The couple owns a 2-acre vineyard in Bennett Valley as well as procures grapes from Showket, Sugarloaf, Kick Ranch and other vineyards in the Napa and Sonoma counties. In regards to the winemaking approach, Bevan Cellars centers themselves on managing tannins, which results in wines that are decadent yet polished and perfect for your cellar.

Tasting Notes

WS97
A remarkably seductive effort, delightfully creamy and chocolaty, plush and layered, with a firm, rich, potent core of dense, earth-laced currant and blackberry flavors. Firm cedary oak is evident, gliding along gracefully on the finish. Drink now through 2029.
WA95
I tasted one 2012, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Vixen Block Wildfoote. This nearly 300-case cuvée is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from clone 7 and aged in equal parts new Taransaud and Darnajou. Flirting with perfection for sure, this is an absolutely riveting wine. It offers a magnificent, room-filling fragrance of red and black currants, blackberries, camphor, incense, truffle and lead pencil shavings. Some toasty oak is followed by an almost never-ending style of wine, with enormous extract and body, gorgeous richness, purity, and equilibrium, and a killer finish of close to a minute. This is amazing stuff that should continue to drink well for another 25-30 years.
