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.

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.
The Bennett Family Reserve wines are fine wines from California. They have chosen Russian River Valley for their Chardonnay and Napa Valley for their Cabernet Sauvignon to make wine worthy of the Bennett family name.
