Winemaker's Notes:

The wine opens with bright aromas of blackberry, dark cherry and cassis. On the palate, the wine displays flavors of rich, dark berries and mocha. With elegant, velvety tannins, the wine has a long fruit driven finish.

Blend: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 10% Syrah, 6% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Franc

My Notes:

About Bennett Lane:

Follow Napa Valley's Route 29 north to Calistoga, and then keep going just 2 1/2 more miles. You'll arrive at the pinnacle of the Napa Valley - the northernmost wedge where the Vaca mountain range meets the Mayacamas range. Here you will also find Bennett Lane Winery, sitting snugly at the edge of its own well-maintained Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard.
