This Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is comprised from vineyards seated in rocky soils and surrounded in warmth; these influences encourage deep root growth and complex flavored grapes. The 2009 vintage is chock full of plum, loganberry and black cherry flavors. Hints of tea, cocoa and cassis aromas snare the olfactory while a well supported mid palate gives way to a polished, soft finish. Made with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Big & Bold
Had this Benzinger in poor shipping conditions (extreme heat) and wine still stood out extremely strong with my grilled game meat. Have ordered more bottles before this vintage disappears. Rare find for its budget. Bold Cab that is fruit forward that has a slightly sweat note on the finish palate.
