2011 Bench Blend Collection
Cabernet Sauvignon

Our 2011 Bench Blend Cabernet Sauvignon is rich and dark with aromas and flavors of blackberry and hints of chocolate. The fruit flavors are balanced by notes of brown spice and sweet vanilla from fine oak integration. The soft, plush mouthfeel, intense fruit and silky tannins evolve into an impressive fruit-focused finish.

The Napa Valley AVA is renowned for its long growing season, marked by warm, sunny days and cool evenings. These growing conditions are ideal for allowing grapes to ripen slowly and evenly. We selected the grapes for this wine from our estate vineyard in Napa Valley. Here, the unique soils and topography allow for small berry size and good concetration in the finished wine. Despite several challenges, including rain followed by high humidity and cooler-than-average temperatures, the 2011 growing season in Napa Valley delivered fruit of exceptional quality.
