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

91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2007

($40; a 70/30 blend of cabernet franc and merlot) Moderately saturated dark red. Complex, subtle aromas of black raspberry, redcurrant, mocha, brown spices, tobacco, smoke and earth. A step up in definition from the merlot bottlings, with good underlying minerality and spice character contributing brightness and energy. Firm, balanced wine with very good lift. Finishes with building, slightly dry tannins.

STUNNING! Much more sophisticated today.

We tried another bottle recently and were stunned how the wine has developed over the last five years. It had an exquisite balance and fineness at the 3-4 hour mark. This wine is perhaps the biggest bargain we have enjoyed from WA.

I loved it the first few times, then I let it breathe in a decanter for almost two hours. Richer, more mature, full in the mouth. Fantastic!
At this price, this wine is a bargain

Very rounded wine, true Bordeaux-like, smooth but with plenty of character

Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Franc is one of the three principal varieties in Bordeaux, as well as being the dominant variety in the fine wines of the western Loire Valley. In Bordeaux's Left Bank, Cabernet Franc serves as a blending component adding aromatic complexity to the more muscular Cabernet Sauvignon. On the Right Bank, the grape is found in the clay soils of St. Emilion, where it...
