Our Benchmark Cabernet Sauvignon recognizes the distinctive character and nuances of our estate vineyard. In 2020, our winemaker surveyed his favorite block, Block 23, by vinifying the east and west sections of the hill and picking his favorite barrels from the most expressive, concentrated and intense lots. Aromas of crème de cassis, cola and nutmeg leap from the glass while notes of licorice, fresh tilled soil, black currant jam and dark chocolate delight the palate. Full bodied, rich and expressive, this wile boasts velvety tannins that lead to a lingering finish. This wine is made to age for years to come and would make an ideal addition to your cellar.
