A big, ripe nose of fresh boysenberry, blackberry and dark cherry fruit, complemented by seductive roasted earth and dark chocolate scents, introduces lush, deeply concentrated flavors of boysenberry, blackberry, dark cherry and cassis framed by firm, but supple tannins. The wine's dramatically long, savory finish showcases rich, dark fruit with notes of chocolate, spice and toasted oak. Thoroughly delicious now, this complex, opulent, Napa Valley cabernet sauvignon will handsomely reward another 7-10 years' aging.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Benchland Select displays a deep garnet-purple color with a very pretty nose of lilacs and roses over a core of cassis, blueberries and black cherries with hints of baking spices and dusty earth. The palate is rich and generous, with perfumed fruit framed by fine-grained tannins and loads of freshness, finishing long.
