Cakebread Benchland Select Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Benchland Select is a stunner. Aged 22 months in 54% new French oak, the wine has a dense, blackish/blue color, a beautiful nose of graphite, blackberry, blueberry, a touch of charcoal embers and spice. It's youthful, restrained and holding back somewhat. Nevertheless, this is a super-impressive wine that will age effortlessly for 25-30 years. In fact, I don't think it's going to hit its peak for another 5-7 years. This is a beauty.
