There are 1,200 cases of the 2015 Ontogeny and it’s 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot and the balance Cabernet Franc. Its deep purple color is followed by a gorgeously pure bouquet of black and blue fruits, crushed flowers (violets, lilies), lead pencil shavings, and damp earth. Deep, full-bodied, layered and multi-dimensional on the palate, with incredible purity of fruit and a seamlessness that's hard to describe, it's a gorgeous wine that's fabulous today, yet will keep for two decades or more.
There is no issue at all with tasting the 2015 Ontogeny, Bevan's entry-level wine, after all the big guns. If anything, the tasting order simply shows what a great wine this. Expansive aromatics lead into a core of rich, pliant fruit in this sweeping, dramatic wine. Readers who don't want to splurge on the higher-priced offerings will do just fine with the Ontogeny. This is a tremendous showing. (AG)
Composed of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Petit Verdot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Ontogeny Proprietary Red Wine gives a gorgeous nose of spice box, violets and mocha with a core of crème de cassis, ripe plums and black cherries plus a touch of underbrush. Full-bodied, ripe and expressive, it is beautifully open for business right now with a soft, approachable texture and a long, spicy finish. 700 cases produced. (LPB)
