Bevan Ontogeny Red Wine
This Bevan Ontogeny Red has more Cabernet Sauvignon than ever to make sure that the final blend has the dark fruit flavors that have made Ontogeny so special in past vintages. The winery ended up using 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc and 15% Merlot. It has an amazing fruit impression on the palate and a plush finish.
To ensure that the Ontogeny could stand toe to toe with its siblings, the winery used a considerable amounts of the Harbison Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, which is so precious, but the wine shines because of it.
