Our Benchland Select Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from several prime vineyard sites in Napa
Valley's gently sloping western benchlands. In 2007, 54% of our Benchland Select grapes
came from the acclaimed Rutherford appellation, with 46% from its equally esteemed southern
neighbor, Oakville. Each lot of grapes was hand-harvested at night to ensure the freshest flavors,
and then fermented and aged separately prior to blending.
2007 was an exceptional vintage for cabernet sauvignon in Napa Valley. This sumptuous, exquisitely structured Napa Valley cabernet sauvignon displays bright, ripe
blackberry, boysenberry and plum fruit aromas mingled with seductive scents of loamy earth and
dark chocolate. On the full-bodied, beautifully composed palate, the wine delivers wonderfully
fresh, deep and concentrated blackberry and dark plum flavors framed by round, supple tannins
and a long, succulent finish enriched by savory cocoa and mocha tones. Dense, lush and
seamless, with perfect underlying structure, this delicious Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
drinks beautifully now, but will display even greater complexity with another 6-8 years' aging.
"The stunning 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Benchland Select is a cross-village blend of Oakville and Rutherford fruit. Aromas of graphite, burning embers, crushed rocks/flint, plums, licorice and blackberries are vaguely reminiscent of a top vintage of La Mission-Haut-Brion. Full-bodied, deep, chewy flavors, admirable purity and stunning concentration result in a profound Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 20+ years. Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon of this quality rarely exists at this price point."

When he returned home that afternoon, the phone rang and it was the family friends offering to sell their property. He headed back up to the valley that same afternoon...Read More About Cakebread
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...Read More About Napa Valley
(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,...Read More About Cabernet Sauvignon
