2016 Cakebread "Benchland" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Elsewhere $140+)

SKU #1445602 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Benchland Select is all Cabernet that spent 22 months in 61% new French oak. It's similarly inky colored and has terrific, flowery blue and black fruits, loads of incense, spice, and tobacco, full body, building tannins, and a great, great finish. It's another thrilling wine from this team that plays with the best of the best. Inner quote mark

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Benchland Select is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, with 65% of the fruit coming from Vine Hill Ranch. It was aged 22 months in French oak, 61% new. Very deep garnet-purple colored, the nose features very dark, serious, broody fruit notions of blackcurrant cordial, boysenberries and mulberries with nuances of cigar box, fungi, fertile loam and pencil lead plus a touch of tar. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a wonderfully plush texture with beautifully integrated freshness and a generous black-fruit core, finishing long with some spicy layers coming through.

Outer quote mark Julianne Laks blends this wine from two western benchland sites, one in Rutherford, the other in Oakville. Its time in French oak barrels, most of them new, shows in the rich notes of espresso-roast coffee that dominate the wine for its first two days open. But the wine’s silken elegance begins to win out with air, its firm structure showing more clearly. The flavors will open with decanting and wood-fired grilled meats. Inner quote mark (12/2019)
