Crafting Fine Wine at the Pinnacle of Napa Valley
Follow Napa Valley's Route 29 north to Calistoga, and then keep going just 2 1/2 more miles. You'll arrive at the pinnacle of the Napa Valley - the northernmost wedge where the Vaca mountain range meets the Mayacamas range. Here you will also find Bennett Lane Winery, sitting snugly at the edge of its own well-maintained Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard.
Owners Randy and Lisa Lynch purchased the property only four years ago, but Bennett Lane is already making a splash in wine country with its lush textured Cabernet Sauvignon and a no-nonsense red wine varietal blend called Maximus, composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah.
Maximus leads the way in Bennett Lane's quest to produce high quality Napa Valley red wine. The 2002 Maximus was named the Top Value Napa Valley Cabernet for the 2002 vintage by Wine Spectator's James Laube and the 2003 Maximus made a splash with a 90 Point rating from the Wine Spectator.
All three of Bennett Lane's 2003 Napa Valley red wine releases have scored 90+ points from the Wine Spectator and are listed as some of the Great California Cabernets in the magazines annual Cabernet Issue. The 2003 Primus Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon leads the pack with a score of 93 Points, one of the top rated Napa Cabernets of the year in the publication.
