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.

Expert Reviews

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?

Member Notes

perfect with fondue
I had dinner at a place in NY called Artisinal. I asked the waiter to suggest a wine that would go well with our fondue and appetizer. He hit the mark with this one. It was perfectly dry and complimented the "artisinal's own" fondue. Can't say enough about this wine. Since then I've tried a couple of other albarino's from Spain. I have to say that this one still rings true. Much drier than it's Spainaird cousins. Well done. Unfortunatly I had a filet mignon, and couldn't continue enjoying this great wine.

About Napa Valley

Napa Valley is the most famous wine-growing area in the U.S. It begins at the base of Mount St. Helena in the north and tapers off some 30 miles to the south into the floodplain where the Napa River enters San Francisco Bay. From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.
