96 Points - Robert Parker (Wine Advocate)"The stunning 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Benchland Select is a cross-village blend of Oakville and Rutherford fruit. Aromas of graphite, burning embers, crushed rocks/flint, plums, licorice and blackberries are vaguely reminiscent of a top vintage of La Mission-Haut-Brion. Full-bodied, deep, chewy flavors, admirable purity and stunning concentration result in a profound Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 20+ years. Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon of this quality rarely exists at this price point."Winemaker's Notes: Our Benchland Select Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from several prime vineyard sites in Napa Valleys gently sloping western benchlands. In 2007, 54% of our Benchland Select grapes came from the acclaimed Rutherford appellation, with 46% from its equally esteemed southern neighbor, Oakville. Each lot of grapes was hand-harvested at night to ensure the freshest flavors, and then fermented and aged separately prior to blending.
