The Haven is a Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and a small quantity of Petit Verdot (percentages vary slightly from vintage to vintage) raised for 24 months in 50% new French oak. It has a dense, slightly introspective bouquet with dusky blackberry and raspberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent, ripe tannins, fine acidity and a sensual, tarry finish that lingers nicely in the mouth. A very nice wine at a very attractive price.

Wine AdvocateThe 2010 The Haven is a blend of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot raised for 24 months in 50% new French oak. It has a dense, slightly introspective bouquet with dusky blackberry and raspberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent, ripe tannins, fine acidity and a sensual, tarry finish that lingers nicely in the mouth. This is very commendable for the price.
