Winemaker's Notes

With over a century of experience in the wine and spirits business, William Grant and Sons has been dedicated to hand selecting an excellent portfolio of wines from around the world. We are proud to bring that same expertise to the Napa Valley to create Bennett Family Cabernet Sauvignon. Working with some of the best talent in the region, we?ve made this wine using hand selected grapes from the finest vineyards. The result is a wine of uncompromised quality, a wine worthy of our family?s heritage. Following a 7 day fermentation, the wine was left on the skins for a period of extended maceration; in addition to softening the tannins, this process helps extract maximum color and flavor.? Once the wine was gently pressed, it was racked to French oak barrels, 60% of which were new.? The wine underwent the malolactic fermentation in barrels to "tame" the new barrel tannins and was then aged for 18 months before bottling. Varietal Composition: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Appellation: Napa Valley Age of Vines: 10 Years Cases Produced: 1,800 Alcohol Content: 14.5% alc./vol. Total Acidity: 0.59 g/l pH: 3.68 Tasting Notes: Aromas of black fruit dominate: cherries, plums, and a briar patch on a warm day come to mind. The aromas carry over to the palate in a mouth-filling, full-bodied package with well rounded tannins that hint at years of drinking pleasure to come. A long, seamless finish invites another taste.

Learn About Bennett Family

The Bennett Family Reserve wines are fine wines from California. We have chosen the specific regions for our Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon to make wine worthy of our family name. Russian River Valley produces great Chardonnay and the famed Napa Valley is perfectly suited for well structured Cabernet Sauvignon. The flavors are bright, varietally correct and enhanced with subtle oak that makes our Chardonnay rich and buttery and our Cabernet velvety smooth. We hope you enjoy drinking these wines as much as we enjoyed making them.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
