(blended with 8% petit verdot and 7% merlot): Bright ruby-red. Bright aromas of crushed raspberry and licorice. Nicely concentrated and fresh, with a supple texture to the sweet cherry, dark berry and spice flavors. With its sweet tannins and fruity personality, this sexy wine should offer early pleasure.
The 2008 Spare Me is composed of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and 8% Merlot. (Is the name a reference to the lynch mob mentality of the internet blogosphere?) The wine reveals beautiful aromas of black raspberries, black currants and spice box in its medium to full-bodied, richly fruity, savory, intellectually and hedonistically satisfying personality. Enjoy it over the next decade. Les and Lisa Behrens are two of my favorite people in Napa Valley for the simple reason that they love wine and make gorgeously delicious wines with a fun approach that is reflected in their creative labels...If you haven't yet discovered these wines, it's about time you do. If there is a future in the wine world for real people, Lisa and Les Behrens have to succeed.
Trim and well-proportioned, with ripe currant, black licorice, mineral, cedar and graphite notes. This is full-bodied, supple until the finish, where it firms up nicely, ending with a dash of espresso. Drink now through 2018. 249 cases made. (Web-2011)
