About the Wine
A big, ripe nose of fresh boysenberry, blackberry and dark cherry fruit, complemented by seductive roasted earth and dark chocolate scents, introduces lush, deeply concentrated flavors of boysenberry, blackberry, dark cherry and cassis framed by firm, but supple tannins. The wine’s dramatically long, savory finish showcases rich, dark fruit with notes of chocolate, spice and toasted oak. Thoroughly delicious now, this complex, opulent, Napa Valley cabernet sauvignon will handsomely reward another 7-10 years’ aging.
About the Winery
One of the most respected wineries in North America, Cakebread is a second generation family business in California’s famous Napa Valley. With 40+ harvests under their belt, the Cakebread family welcomed the introduction of new farming techniques like night harvesting and whole cluster pressing, but their dedication to family and making the highest quality wines remains at the core of the business as it’s grown from family vineyard into an international multi-award winning wine company.
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Benchland Select displays a deep garnet-purple color with a very pretty nose of lilacs and roses over a core of cassis, blueberries and black cherries with hints of baking spices and dusty earth. The palate is rich and generous, with perfumed fruit framed by fine-grained tannins and loads of freshness, finishing long. ~ 94 pts, WA
