This exquisite wine was created by the owner's love for Bordeaux wine, it's predominantly Cabernet Franc with 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Petit Verdot. Labor of Love obtained its name due to the amount of hands-on labour that led to produce this wine. This often "sold out" wine has notes of tobacco, charcoal, graphite, vanilla, baking spice, and oak blackberry crumble. This rare fine wine is made with love and meant to be enjoyed with those you love.

Try it with cranberry, brown sugar and sage roasted pork chops.

Behrens Family Winery is a boutique winery in the truest sense. Owned by Les Behrens and Lisa Drinkward, who've made wine under the Behrens & Hitchcock label since 1993, Behrens Family Winery produces small lots of six or seven wines a year at its winery perched high on top of Spring Mountain in Napa Valley. Each wine is a low tech labor of love: crushed into one-ton T-bins, punched down by hand, gently transferred to barrel, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. One only has to look at Les and Lisa's hands during harvest to know their wines are truly ?hand-crafted.? The couple also gravitates toward small, interesting and low-yielding vineyard sites, working with growers who they know, like and trust, and who are as obsessive about quality as they are. For Les and Lisa, it's all about letting the vineyards steal the show, and allowing the wines to speak for themselves. 

Napa Valley is host to some of the most diverse soil series in the world. It also benefits from a rare Mediterranean climate. These ideal conditions along with daily fog settling in the valley from San Pablo bay are an equation resulting in complex Cabernet's, Chardonnay's and more.
