Bevan Cellars

Bevan Cellars Tench Vineyard is approximately 17 acres sitting at the base of the Vaca mountains where they meet the valley floor. The eastern Oakville bench was created by a landslide thousands of years ago and the red, rocky, clay soils and sandy loam were the result. Nutrient deficient, stressed vines, thrive in the deep, well-drained soils that allow for large root systems.

The Bevan Tench Vineyard EE is a small-lot, Bordeaux-blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, where the Cabernet Sauvignon comes from Block 2A on the Tench Vineyard. Here the soil consists of homogenized red soil that gives finesse and more refined textures in the finished wine. The final blend has complexity, breadth and aromatics of fruit. A full-throttle and full-on Cabernet blend that is richly textured with ripe tobacco, violets, damp cedar, espresso and cacao.

“Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2021 EE Red comes prancing out of the glass with gregarious scents of black cherry compote, blueberry pie, and blackcurrant jelly with suggestions of dried mint, dusty soil, and underbrush. The full-bodied palate is bursting with black fruit preserves layers and earthy accents, supported by firm, grainy tannins and beautiful tension, finishing long and fragrant.”                                                                                      98 points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Independent, October 2023

“The 2021 EE Red Wine is ripe and powerful, with smoky red and black fruits as well as lots of background oak, graphite, espresso, and dark chocolate-like aromas and flavors that develop beautifully with time in the glass. Deep, rich, full-bodied, and concentrated on the palate, it has plenty of background oak, the building tannins of the vintage, and a great finish. A gorgeous wine, it will benefit from 3-4 years in the cellar and evolve for 25-30 years in cold cellars. The blend is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Cabernet Franc brought up in new barrels.”

“A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Cabernet Franc, the 2021 Proprietary Red EE Tench Vineyard offers up a wonderful range of dark fruit—black cherries, cassis and blackberries—couched in hints of dark chocolate. Like almost all the Bevan wines, it’s full-bodied, richly concentrated and velvety in texture. This one finishes long, with a mocha and cocoa-stained finish.”
95-97 points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate, May 2023
