About Havens Wine Cellars
Prior to selling his winery, Michael Havens made Merlot in a distinctly Bordeaux style, with a restrained sweetness and notes of lead pencil, minerals, game and tobacco leaf. He was also a pioneer of California Syrah in a distinctly northern Rhône style, typically showing notes of dark fruits, black pepper and gunflint.
87-88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2001
Lemon-yellow color. Aromatic nose combines peach, banana, lime, white flowers and nut skin. Penetrating and slightly tart in the mouth, with bright acidity and a pungent flavor of gooseberry. Offers good intensity and interesting flavors, but comes across as somewhat hard-edged. Will this be suppler in the bottle?
