Behrens Family 2015 Labor of Love Red Wine

The source of this gorgeous Cabernet Franc blend is Henry and Mayra Martinez’s spectacular vineyard on famed Pritchard Hill – one of our favorite spots in all of the Napa Valley. Legendary for producing powerful wines of great substance, this location always delivers. The 2015 Labor of Love is deep ruby red with an intriguing nose of white pepper, fresh herbs and cassis. Plum and black raspberry flavors are balanced with more savory, meaty notes. Great concentration, structure and firm tannins lend support through to the long dusty cocoa finish. This one goes straight to the senses – heady and soulful. What’s not to love?

Jeb Dunnuck - 95 points

The 2015 Cabernet Franc Labor Of Love is gorgeous, and one of my favorites in the lineup. Cassis, spring flowers, distinct minerality, and hints of chocolate all emerge from this medium to full-bodied beauty. Possessing ripe, present tannin, a focused, elegant personality, and plenty of exuberance, it's going to drink nicely for 15+ years or more.

Behrens Family Winery
Behrens Family Winery is a boutique winery in the truest sense. Owned by Les Behrens and Lisa Drinkward, who’ve made wine under the Behrens & Hitchcock label since 1993, Behrens Family Winery produces small lots of six or seven wines a year at its winery perched high on top of Spring Mountain in Napa Valley. Each wine is a low tech labor of love: crushed into one-ton T-bins, punched down by hand, gently transferred to barrel, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. One only has to look at Les and Lisa’s hands during harvest to know their wines are truly “hand-crafted.” The couple also gravitates toward small, interesting and low-yielding vineyard sites, working with growers who they know, like and trust, and who are as obsessive about quality as they are. For Les and Lisa, it’s all about letting the vineyards steal the show, and allowing the wines to speak for themselves.
