2003 Behrens Family Winery 'Behrens & Hitchcock' Cemetery Red Napa Valley California USA

Medium red. Cool aromas of cherry, mint, tobacco leaf and flowers. Then supple and nicely focused, with flavors of red cherry, chocolate and mint. Distinctly cooler wine, finishing with a medicinal black cherry and mint character and slightly dry tannins. The vines from this gravelly site typically give linear wines, and thus the merlot is needed to fill them out, notes Behrens.
