2007 Bennett Lane Maximus Napa Valley Red Blend 750ml

Owners Randy and Lisa Lynch purchased the property only eight years ago, but Bennett Lane is already making a splash in wine country with its lush textured Cabernet Sauvignon and a no-nonsense red wine varietal blend called Maximus, composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. The winery has garnered an incredible twenty-eight 90+ Point Scores from Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast and Robert Parker in just 7 vintages.

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The 2007 Maximus Red Feasting Wine (65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 10% Syrah, 6% Malbec and 3% Cabernet Franc) exhibits a dark ruby/purple color along with notions of cedar, licorice, black currants, chocolate and coffee. This medium to full-bodied 2007 should drink nicely for a decade or more.

WINE ENTHUSIAST RATING: 94

WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: Tastes dramatic and youthfully vital, with fat, fleshy flavors of blackberries, cassis, mocha and sweet cedar, as well as a mineral tang that grounds them. Very upscale and refined, a pure product of superior terroir and winemaking.

WINE SPECTATOR RATING: 92

WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Enticingly complex, rich and layered, showing fresh, vibrant blackberry, wild berry, cedar and spice flavors, with a texture that's both supple and firm. Full-bodied, with a long, lingering finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2020.

Another 2007 Great Value Review by Harry (Staff)
Rating
The 2007 vintage has been one of the benchmark vintages for California, and has been a part of some of the most memorable wines we have ever come across. From long time producer, Bennett Lane, comes another great Maximus red blend. This wine is packed with flavor and depth and is extremely versatile. Beautiful on the nose as well as the palate, this wine is loaded with dark rich fruits along with a perfect balance of oak. Enjoy it today with various dishes, or have a glass and let it surprise you with its easy drinking approach. It has been some time since we've come across a Napa blend this stunning at such an affordable price point. Pick it up today! (Posted on 5/30/12)
