2015 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon Benchlands
The 2015 Rutherford Benchlands Cabernet Sauvignon begins with seductive aromas of blackberries, cream de cassis, tobacco, pencil shavings, dusty stones, bell pepper and exotic sweet spices all soaring from the glass. Full-bodied with an enveloping, plush texture, laced with ripe dark fruits, sweet spices and graphite notes that layer the palate. It possesses wonderful concentration as it comes to an end with a long, supple finish. While this is simply delicious now it should also have a nice evolution ahead.
