2013 Bench Blend Collection
Cabernet Sauvignon

Our 2012 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. The 2012 vintage in Napa Valley was outstanding. Relatively mild conditions throughout the growing season paved the way for even ripening. A few days of rain threatened the early part of harvest, but all fears were soon quelled when gusting winds came through to dry the vines.
