2015 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Benchlands
From a spectacular vintage, this wine showcases the very best the valley floor has to offer, with fruit that was sourced primarily from the illustrious Rutherford and Oakville appellations. At first swirl complex aromas lift out of the glass. As the wine opens up aromas of cassis and plum take center stage, then layers of spice and vanilla emerge. Full-bodied and luscious at its core, the seductive black fruit is laced with a touch of vanilla. The finish lingers with balanced acidity resting on a bed of supple tannins.
