Fodor's Review

The stated goal of Rob Hunter, Bennett Lane's winemaker, is "to create the greatest Cabernet Sauvignon in the world." At this winery's tastefully casual salon in the far northern Napa Valley you can find out how close he and associate winemaker Rachel Gondouin have come. Although it's known for Cabernet, Bennett Lane also makes other reds, a sparkling wine, Chardonnay, and the Maximus White Feasting Wine, a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Muscat. Signature flight tastings, indoors at the bar and, in pleasant weather, outdoors at tables with Calistoga Palisades views, survey the winery's white and red wines. There's also a Cab-focused reserve tasting. Tastings are by appointment only. Given the quality of their grapes, the Napa Valley Cabernet and Cab-heavy Maximus Red Feasting Wine are relative bargains.
