Cakebread Benchland Select Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 is a nice Cabernet which displays a warm, blanketing aroma of coffee, with an added dark chocolate and black fruit flavor. Combined with subtle hints of earth, tar and sweet oak, this Cabernet Sauvignon is plump and round on the palate, offering a lush, broad flavor of black figs, currants, and plums. A balanced texture enhanced by supple tannins and a savoring, silky finish. Excellent and beautifully structured, this full, generous California Cabernet Sauvignon is ready to drink now, but will handsomely reward you with the aging years of cellaring.

Winemaker's Notes: Our 2006 Benchland Select Cabernet Sauvignon was crafted from two prime vineyard sites in the heart of Napa Valley’s gently sloping western benchlands, with 63% of the grapes coming from the Oakville appellation and 37% from the Rutherford appellation. These sites enjoy ideal eastern exposures, mild afternoon temperatures and well-drained soils, ensuring their fruit ripens slowly and evenly throughout the growing season. We hand-harvest, ferment and age each block separately to capture its unique qualities, then blend the lots to create a Napa Valley cabernet sauvignon of exceptional fragrance, depth and character. This sumptuous Napa Valley cabernet sauvignon offers fragrant aromas of blackberry, boysenberry and ripe fig coupled with seductive loam, leather, dark chocolate and spice scents. Full and well-rounded on the palate, its lavish blackberry, black cherry and dark chocolate flavors are framed by powerful, yet supple tannins and extend into a long, lush finish. Seamlessly structured, with dense, concentrated fruit, this latest edition of our luxurious Benchland Select Cabernet Sauvignon drinks beautifully now, but will reward another 6-8 years of bottle aging.
