The Bennett Family sells almost all their wine from the tasting room or via mail. Many restaurants in the North Coast also stock Navarro wine.
Bennett’s Deep End Blend Pinot Noir is one of my personal favorites of this varietal. He also makes two other versions of the grape. Each gets a different amount of oak treatment and has its own personality.
He also makes impressive Gewurztraminer with very low-yielding vines. It is fermented in small oak barrels. Navarro was one of the first California producers to get this finicky varietal right. For far too long, California growers gave up on Pinot because grape because it had little success in warm climates.
The Bennetts also make very good Riesling. This grape has been a disappointment in most of California, but not in the Anderson Valley. Navarro makes a complex Riesling with excellent clarity and distinctive minerality.
