Like the gently sloping Benchlands, Cakebread Benchland Select Cabernet Sauvignon is soft and elegant with rich, ripe berry flavors veiled by delicately balanced tannins. The wine shows intense aromas of red fruit married to spicy notes of mocha, cocoa and nutmeg. The palate echoes the aromas, with elegant flavors of ripe fruit marked by a fine balance of vanilla, cedar and supple, well-integrated tannins.

Tasting notes
Elegant layers of pure black cherry and cassis fruit are offset by notes of cedar and coffee in this wine's flavors and aromas, which are set in a well integrated yet firmly focused tannic structure.

Wine maker notes
This Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from Oakville and Rutherford grapes grown in prime vineyard sites in the heart of Napa Valley’s gently sloping western benchlands. Here, ideal eastern exposures, mild afternoon temperatures and well-drained soils ensure that fruit ripens slowly and evenly throughout the growing season. The blocks are hand harvested, then separately fermented in stainless steel and matured to guarantee that each vineyard site’s finest attributes are reflected in the final blend. After lot-specific maturation totaling 19 months in French oak (41% new), lots are blended and bottled.
