Behrens Family Winery Homeland 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Behrens Family Winery|
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Homeland seems somewhat monolithic compared to the Cemetery or the Camping Forever. It is chunky, juicy, has loads of concentration and extract, but lacks the nuance and potential complexity of the other cuvées. It is full-bodied and well-made, but didn't quite sing to the extent that I would have expected. Drink it over the next 15 years.
Firmly tannic, overshadowing a modest band of juicy red and dark berry that loses velocity midpalate, ending clean but also simple. Drink now through 2027. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 493 cases made.
