2016 Bench Cabernet Sauvignon

This is just the second vintage we have seen of this wine. The 2016 is just as impressive as the 2015 vintage. The 2015 was one of our top selling Cabernets this year.
Amazing 2016 vintage in California - (Robert Parker rated the vintage as a whole 97 points for Cabernet Sauvignon)

This is an impressive Cabernet for $20

2016 Bench Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County...$19.99
Suggested retail is $24

Deep purple in color and aromatically expressive with ripe, black plum currant coulis and minerally graphite. The structure is firm with soft, elegant tannins and mouth-watering acidity. Flavors of black forest fruit and earth, dark cocoa, mint and anise are meld together on the finish.Bench Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced exclusively from benchland vineyards in Sonoma County, where valley floor transitions to foothills.  I prefer these vineyard sites as they produce concentrated and intense fruit that results in an elegantly balanced wine with depth, beauty and complexity.
