Behrens Family Winery Labor of Love 2010
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Behrens Family Winery|
Wine AdvocateThe Cabernet Franc-based 2010 Red Blend Labor of Love is one of the more tightly wound wines in this lineup. Precise and beautifully articulated, the 2010 stands out for its length and sheer purity of fruit. Anise, roses, and raspberry jam are some of the aromas and flavors that flow through to the bright, nuanced finish. There is a centeredness to the 2010 that is highly appealing. Labor of Love is 78% Cabernet Franc, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
Wine SpectatorA muscular effort, with a core of chewy dark berry, black licorice, dried herb and cedar, this pulls together on the finish, where the focus is tighter, showing a tannic strength. Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2022.
