Cakebread Benchland Select Cabernet Sauvignon

Availability: In stock

Ripe, dramatically concentrated aromas of boysenberry, blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, coupled with seductive chocolate and loam scents, introduce a lush palate of luxurious dark berry, cassis, black fig and dark chocolate flavors framed by round, supple tannins. Seamlessly structured and beautifully balanced, with a very long, sumptuous finish. Irresistibly delicious now, but will handsomely reward another 7-10 years of bottle age.

More information:

The grapes for the Benchland Select come from two outstanding vineyards – one in Rutherford, the other in Oakville – on Napa Valley’s gently sloping western benchlands. In 2013, the majority of the fruit (59%) came from winery founder Jack Cakebread’s Hill Ranch in the heart of the famed Rutherford appellation. Both sites benefit from an ideal eastern exposure, well-drained alluvial soils and mild summer afternoons, resulting in uniform fruit ripening and cabernet sauvignons that are simultaneously opulent and elegant.

In 2013, a warm, dry spring initiated early bud-break, ensured trouble-free vine flowering and grape set, and led to a consistently mild summer fostering steady, even ripening and grapes boasting wonderful flavor concentration. The grapes were picked between September 25th and October 3rd with an optimum balance of sugar and acidity.
