Cakebread Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Benchland Select

Wine Details

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) Lavish dark cherry, boysenberry, blackberry and blackcurrant aromas, complemented by intriguing loam, mocha and toasty oak scents, introduce our 2011 Benchland Select Cabernet Sauvignon. Smooth and round on the palate, with wonderfully soft tannins, its plush boysenberry, blackberry, black fig and ripe cherry flavors take on savory earth, chocolate, mineral and toasted oak tones in the wine’s long, fruitful finish.
