Twenty Bench Sauvignon 2012
"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
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!
External Reviews for Twenty Bench Sauvignon
Very oaky, with vanilla and caramel aromas and flavors and notes of blackberries and kirsch. The wine is fully dry, with lovely Napa tannins.
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.
