"Creamy, toasty oak adds a pleasant overlay and hints at what's to come, as the complexity of the flavors centers on currant, red and dark berry and licorice. Ends on the oaky side. Drink now through 2029. 1,800 cases made. -JL " (WS)

"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Benchland Select is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from some of the finest western benchlands in Napa Valley. This saw about 23 months in 64% new French oak. A rather glorious nose of red and black fruits, spice box, earth and graphite jump from the glass of this full-bodied, beautifully supple and voluptuously textured wine. A dense purple color, juicy, round, plush tannins and a multi-layered mouthfeel make for a great Napa Cabernet Sauvignon to drink now or cellar for another 15-20 years." (WA)

"Earthy and spicy aromas with dried-strawberry undertones follow through to a medium to full body and a savory finish. Drink and enjoy." (JS)

Winery Notes:
Enticing boysenberry, blackberry, blackcurrant and dark cherry fruit aromas, coupled with scents of loam, chocolate and sweet, toasty oak, introduce the lush, mouth-filling flavors of this sumptuous cabernet sauvignon. Boasting deep and luxurious blackberry, boysenberry, blackcurrant and dark cherry fruit, this rich, yet elegant red is framed by supple, polished tannins and culminates in an impressively long finish brimming with seductive blackberry, chocolate and wood spice tones. Thoroughly delicious now, our 2014 Benchland Select will handsomely reward another 7-10 years of bottle age.
