Crafted by Russell Bevan, one of the most sought-after winemakers in California today, Addax is an artisan wine brand led by Brian Kearney and Josh Peeples. What began with a few friends and 4 barrels of cabernet in 2009 has evolved into a phenomenal portfolio of wines.
This blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon from the famed Tench Vineyard in Oakville and 40% Merlot from Sugarloaf Mountain leaps from the glass with notes of black currant laced with cocoa. Plush and opulent in the mouth, this hedonistic effort combines the brute force of our Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon with the curvaceous nature of our Merlot. Deep and dark, the purity of fruit is layered with tar and baking spice.

With his serious insider knowledge, which gives him access to some great sources that other producers somehow have missed, he seems to magically transform his wines into personality-filled, savory, intensely flavored efforts."
