"Amazing wine. Smells like a French Bordeaux, but a taste reveals its true identity as a California Napa wine."

Bennett Lane Cabernet in the Epic 2012 Vintage!

Calistoga is home to some of the Napa Valley’s most iconic wineries, such as Chateau Montelena, Araujo Eisele Vineyard, Larkmead, and Clos Pegase. Bordeaux-styled blends from these wineries sell for $100+. Calistoga’s Bennett Lane makes one of the best value Cab blends in all of the Napa Valley. The 2012 Maximus is not to be missed by fans of Napa Valley wine in search of an affordable luxury.

 About the wine

This unique Cabernet-centric blend includes 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Syrah, 4% Petite Sirah, 2% Malbec, and 2% Merlot. Flavours of cassis, blueberry pie, blackberry, dark chocolate, coffee, and liquorice offer an exotic, spicier take on the classic Bordeaux blend. 2012 was a terrific vintage in the Napa Valley (96 Point RP vintage rating) and the wine has entered a beautiful drinking window right now. Winemaker Rob Hunter is an expert at crafting Cabernet blends that deliver big time Napa flavour. 

Winemaker Rob Hunter (who studied under Napa’s 1st 100-point winemaker Nils Venge) has a simple motto that comes though clearly in Bennett Lane’s elegant reds: “My goal is to create the greatest Cabernet Sauvignon in the world. Nothing less.”

 Reviews

4.1 ★ Vivino Rating
"Aromas are Blackberry, violets and chocolate covered cherries. On the palate, you have flavored of dark berries, mocha and cherries. Velvety tannins. Long, fruit driven finish."

"Better after laying down for a few months. Cork came out black and starting to throw some sediment, always good signs for me." —Phil B.

90 points, Wine Enthusiast
"A blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Syrah, 2% Malbec and 2% Merlot, this wine offers velvety blackberry jam and chocolate in undulating waves. Dusty, soft tannins complete the likeable package, while the finish is akin to enjoying baked plums in a cigar bar."
