New release from Spring Mountain's Behrens Family Winery.
Get ready for the premiere of Homeland. A candy-cherry nose, loaded with floral, black plum and licorice notes, this powerful and lively wine is balanced with a firm tannin structure. Blackberry jam, raspberry and graphite minerality extend into the lengthy finish. We have worked for years with this vineyard, north of Napa town, which is also the Merlot source for our Frontman. We are happy to create this expressive Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and to call it Homeland. 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, 3% Petite Sirah, 2% Syrah. Only 482 cases produced.
92 Points Ant0onio Galloni: "In addition to the range, the 2012 Homeland packs a serious punch. Dark red and blue toned fruits, iron, smoke, licorice and cloves jump from the glass. Firm tannins from the Petit Verdot, Syrah and Petit lend an attractive element of underlying structure to the dark fruit in a powerful wine loaded with personality."
