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.
90 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2007
($30) Bright ruby-red. Explosively aromatic nose dominated by raspberry and flowers. Sweet and juicy, with fruit-dominated flavors offering lovely lift. Quite bright and primary for 2004. The wine's firm tannins call for a couple years of cellaring. This has turned out very well.
