Behrens Family 2016 The Passenger Petite Sirah

The Passenger is a 93% Petite Sirah from three small, up-valley vineyards. Brooding and dark at the core, with aromas of sandalwood, forest floor and blackberry, the texture is dense yet juicy and mouth filling. The wine finishes with notes of candied citrus peel, mint and Asian spice. There is a lot packed in here - we suggest just going along for the ride.

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.
