2000 Cakebread Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Benchland Select
"The 2000 vintage featured a cool, even growing season culminating in a classic Indian summer, insuring that our cabernet, merlot and cabernet franc grapes developed fully ripened flavors prior to being harvested at optimum maturity between late September and mid-October. "
Wine.comThis Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a clear, dark garnet color. Its spicy, cedar-like scents together with a background aroma of cassis are invitingly rich and complex. On the palate, the texture is rich and smooth with flavors reminiscent of cassis with a hint of chocolate. The overall taste impression of this wine is one of rich black fruit in a delicious balance.
