Behrens & Hitchcock Proprietary Red Cemetery 2003, 750mL (WA94) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Behrens & Hitchcock Proprietary Red Cemetery

750mL

Vintage: 2003
Region: US
Appellation: Napa

WA94
Rated 94 points by the Wine Advocate: `No doubt the famous movie director, Tim Burton, would love the label on the 2003 Cemetery. This blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot tips the scales at 15.6% alcohol. While it won`t drive a nail or two in your coffin, it has a lot going for it. Gorgeous notes of blueberry liqueur, flowers, pepper and spice soar from the glass of this deadly serious, rich, complex wine. With velvety tannins, a full-bodied texture (so much for skeletons not having any guts) and a long finish, I could drink this still young 2003 until the zombies come home. It is a real beauty from Les Behrens and his merry crew of wine producers. There`s nothing macabre about the 2003 Cemetery.` -- Robert Parker in Issue #207 of the Wine AdvocateMore Information about this producer: `I have seen rumors circulating on the blogs alleging a problem with the Behrens-Hitchcock synthetic closures in the winery`s early days, but all of these wines were finished with real cork. This has always been one of my favorite wineries to visit, a great family operation of young to middle-aged wine and food lovers trying to do the best they can, eschewing any arrogance given their serious talent. In short, consumers benefit from high level amateur winemaking and intense viticultural knowledge. It is hard to know in what order to taste these wines, but here goes.` -- Issue #207 of the Wine Advocate
