- Benevolent Neglect
- Other Info:
- Napa is now so expensive that producers are turning to Lake County for better-value land and grapes, and it's a region to look out for, albeit on a smaller scale. Altitude is relatively high (500m+), allowing for a longer growing season.
Benevolent Neglect, a small Napa-based producer, are named because they don't like to do much to intervene during the winemaking process.
Aromas of black fruits (bramble, blackberry, black cherries), flowers (violets, irises), together with a freshness that full-bodied red wine doesn't always have. A very impressive wine that shows what both Mourvèdre and Lake County are capable of.
