Cakebread Cellars Benchland Select Napa Valley
Description: A red with dried fruit, lots of black currant and mineral undertones. Full body, velvety tannins. Savory finish. Shiitake mushrooms too. Delicious finish. 92 Pts. JS. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Benchland Select is a stunner. Aged 22 months in 54% new French oak, the wine has a dense, blackish/blue color, a beautiful nose of graphite, blackberry, blueberry, a touch of charcoal embers and spice. Itís youthful, restrained and holding back somewhat. Nevertheless, this is a super-impressive wine that will age effortlessly for 25-30 years. In fact, I donít think itís going to hit its peak for another 5-7 years. This is a beauty. RP. 94 pts.
