Behrens Head In The Clouds is a big-impact, super-concentrated, party-in-the-mouth Napa Cab from a winery that has perfected this style over the last 30 years. My tasting notes include “black currants, dark chocolate, roast beef fat, crushed river rocks, so spicy, big impact in the mouth” and yes, “hedonistic!”  It is surprising, especially to Behrens Family themselves, that this 2016 is ready to drink, should you choose. While it’s youthful, it is cohesive and very enjoyable. This is a sure thing for all you lovers of big Napa reds. 84% Cab Sauv, 15% Petit Verdot.

Not all wine is created equal.
