2019 "Benchlands" Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
This classic Napa Valley Cabernet is at home as a fine dining companion or at the backyard BBQ. Balance and finesse are the foundation, with a complex medley of both fruit driven and earthy notes. There is a hint of licorice, along with cassis, black cherry, dark chocolate, and sweet umami. The well-integrated tannins linger on the finish. This wine is ready now, but you will be rewarded with a little time in the cellar.
