2007 Cakebread Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Benchland Select

Winemaker's Notes

This sumptuous, exquisitely structured Benchland Select Cabernet Sauvignon displays bright, ripe blackberry, boysenberry and plum fruit aromas mingled with seductive scents of loamy earth and dark chocolate. On the full-bodied, beautifully composed palate, the wine delivers wonderfully fresh, deep and concentrated blackberry and dark plum flavors framed by round, supple tannins and a long, succulent finish enriched by savory cocoa and mocha tones. Dense, lush and seamless, with perfect underlying structure, this delicious Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon drinks beautifully now, but will display even greater complexity with another 6-8 years’ aging.

    (From 2001 Vintage) If boasting a fair degree of Napa Valley richness in its first nose, the wine reveals slightly weedy, green bean notes as part of its broader background of cherry, chocolate and caramel. Fairly full in body and somewhat rounded in early mouthfeel, it seems to stumble just a bit towards the backend and lose just a bit of its fruity continuity and energy.
