I love Bevan wines and they drink so well young.  No exception here although I am sure it will last for a couple of decades (mine will be long gone by then).  Purple in color, ruby at the rim.  The nose has cassis, some blueberries, cedar and graphite.  Very nice.  On the palate, this has great ripe cassis.  The fruit is a bit sweet if I am to nit pick and that kept this from getting a perfect score.  I wonder if in a year or two as it all comes together it it becomes more seamless and less noticeable.  I suppose that depends on if it is residual sugar or just ripe fruit.  As we drank this we remarked how easy it can be to nit pick about a wine and then step back and realize how special wine the wine truly is.  Human frailty I guess.  In any event, this is a spectacular wine with yes, a chance to garner a 100 point rating and likely to do so.  I can only judge them on how they are in my glass.
