Behrens & Hitchcock 2013 20th Anniversary

This is our last wine with the Behrens & Hitchcock label, and we feel that we have ended on an excellent note! Made with love and grapes sourced from our best vineyards, this is a big and powerful wine, with sweet floral notes, hints of cinnamon and dark spice. Black fruit, cola and raspberry liquor are packed in the richly textured mouthfeel and long complex finish. Our good friends the Hitchcocks are now enjoying retirement. Be on the lookout for a wine dedicated to them in the not too distant future!

Wine Advocate - 95 Points

"The other 2013 is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon 20th Anniversary. This is a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 22% Syrah and 11% Petite Sirah. (I was up on Spring Mountain with Les Behrens, his wacky crew and the original Jack Russell at the beginning of their journey.) This is a spine-straightening, rich red wine with tons of extract and richness, an inky purple color, a boatload of tannin, but no rusticity. There are loads of blackberry and blueberry fruit, spring flowers, a broad, savory, thick unctuously textured mouthfeel and a long, long finish. This is classic Behrens wine and, if you are timid about flavor, or have bought into the P.C. wine culture of delicate undernourished and anorexic wines, this will be undeniably offensive. But don’t worry, this is a gorgeous effort and should last for 24 or more years."

The Story
In 2005, with the announcement of Bob & Lily’s retirement, Lisa and Les bought out the Hitchcocks' share of their Spring Mountain winery, leading to the formation of Erna Schein Handcrafted Wines. The name Erna Schein is a dedication to Les’ mother, a woman who was near and dear to all who knew her. Her home was a place of hospitality and friendship, a feeling that we try to replicate here at the winery. She was also a fantastic baker, taking after her mother who was a Cordon Bleu-trained pastry chef. It is Erna’s original vintage Kitchen Aid pictured on our label. It reminds us that food and wine is our favorite way to create and maintain friendships.
