What used to be one of all time favorite Cabernets for just under $20 has really fallen from grace. The 2012 Twenty Bench is thin, with no nose and not much depth at all. It seems that Nine North Wines are more concerned with cranking out vintages quickly without putting the time and care required to craft a good wine. This vintage only spent 9 months in barrel....the 2010 only spent 12 months. The last really good vintage for this wine was 2007. The 07 was a fantastic valued wine for the money. Sadly, this is not the case here. Cheers!

Really like the 2007 and 2006. The 2009 Twenty Bench had no structure to it. It either needs another 2-3 years in the cellar or simply lacks the punch of previous years.

This California Cabernet has a deep color and is full bodied. Complex nose with dark fruit aromas. On tasting, I noted hints of blackberry and licorice with developed tannins with a consistent background of vanilla oak. Very nice, bold Napa Cab for an affordable price.

Sweet, spicy nose of blackberries and cocoa. Sweet fruits play against the acidity. The wine's well balanced, but some may find the fruit too sweet. I really liked it. Very rich and luxurious. Blueberries, blackberries and figs. Nice fruity finish with lingering tannins

What a nice bottle! More sweet and spicy than I was expecting, but really quite special in its subtle spiciness. Blackberry and chocolate linger seemingly forever with a total mouth experience. A great wine for the price.

Winemaker Notes - The 2009 Twenty Bench is medium-bodied with considerable finesse, length, ripeness, and structure. It displays wonderful aromas of vanilla, licorice, black cherry and espresso followed by elegant flavors of raspberry, black currants, blueberries and toasty oak. Ripe, round and luscious, it is ideal for drinking during its first 5-7 years of life.

The Twenty Bench is one of our more pronounced vintages to date. Aromas of black currants, plums and chocolate accompany the wines dense, inky color, while the palate shows great structure.

Winemaker's Notes:

"A rich and expressive style Cabernet Sauvignon, showcasing focused layers of blackberry, plum, wild berry and currant intermixed with spicy toasted oak, which adds a nice flavor dimension. This wine drinks wonderful right out of the gate and should age gracefully for the next 5 - 7 years." -Winery
