2018 Benchland Select Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley


Cakebread Benchland Select Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

About This Wine

This wine is a classic expression of a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with aromas of blackberry and mocha. Concentrated, intense flavors of ripe boysenberry and blackberry with notes of fig fill the palate. Elegantly structured tannins add depth and dimension with a round, rich dark chocolate, dark berry finish. This wine will continue to age gracefully in the bottle for another decade or more.

The 2018 growing season kicked off with plentiful winter rainfall to replenish the soils. Steady vine growth and berry development progressed evenly through the summer months. The vintage was cooler than usual; grapes reached peak maturity with balanced fruit flavors and firm tannins.
