Bevan’s 2014 Curmudgeon, a Cabernet Franc/Cabernet Sauvignon blend, emerges from one of the top sites from Pritchard Hill. Exotic, super-expressive aromatics, super-ripe black fruit, mocha, espresso and plum are some of the many notes that flesh out in the glass. All the elements are in the right place. The Curmudgeon boasts extraordinary aromatic intensity and deep layers of fruit, which makes it one of the best wines in the range.
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2026
