Bevan's approach to winemaking has remained constant since their first vintage. They inspect every grape after it has been removed from the stem. They discard every one that doesn’t meet their standards. Every wine is crafted to maximize balance and textures.
The Ontogeny is blended of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Cabernet Franc, 15% Petit Verdot and 4% Merlot, the deep purple-black colored 2016 Ontogeny Proprietary Red Wine gives pure blackberries, black cherries and blueberries with bay leaves and black pepper plus a touch of cedar. The palate is medium to full-bodied, fresh, grainy and harmonious, finishing long and juicy.
