Details

Cakebread's single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon's are hard to come by. On top of their production being much smaller than their other Cabernets, the scores from the critics will often approach the triple digit mark…which makes them highly collectable! Their Benchland Select bottling is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon crafted from two exceptional vineyards in Napa Valley's gently sloping western benchlands, including Jack Cakebread's Hill Ranch in the heart of the famed Rutherford appellation not far from the winery. These sites enjoy ideal eastern exposures, well-drained soils and mild afternoon temperatures, resulting in uniform fruit ripening and wines that are simultaneously opulent and elegant.

In order to maximize color extraction, tannin structure and vineyard expression, winemaker Julianne Laks uses a mixture of small and larger fermentation tanks, carefully tailored yeast strains, fermentation temperatures, and maceration techniques to the attributes of each lot of grapes, which vary by location, ripeness level and clonal type. Such specialized fermentations, combined with lot-specific barrel aging regimens, ensure that the finest attributes of each vineyard are reflected in the final blend.

ROBERT PARKER 95 POINTS - "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Benchland Select is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from some of the finest western benchlands in Napa Valley. This saw about 23 months in 64% new French oak. A rather glorious nose of red and black fruits, spice box, earth and graphite jump from the glass of this full-bodied, beautifully supple and voluptuously textured wine. A dense purple color, juicy, round, plush tannins and a multi-layered mouthfeel make for a great Napa Cabernet Sauvignon to drink now or cellar for another 15-20 years."

Additional Info

Country: United States

American wine has been produced for over 300 years. Today, wine production is undertaken in all fifty states, with California producing 89 percent of all US wine. The United States is the fourth-largest wine producing country in the world after France, Italy, and Spain. With more than 1,100,000 acres (4,500 km2) under vine, the United States is the sixth-most planted country in the world after France, Italy, Spain, China and Turkey.

Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the world's most widely recognized red wine grape varieties. It is grown in nearly every major wine producing country among a diverse spectrum of climates from Canada's Okanagan Valley to Lebanon's Beqaa Valley. Cabernet Sauvignon became internationally recognized through its prominence in Bordeaux wines where it is often blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. From France, the grape spread across Europe and to the New World where it found new homes in places like California's Santa Cruz Mountains, Napa Valley, New Zealand's Hawkes Bay, Australia's Margaret River and Coonawarra regions and Chile's Maipo Valley and Colchagua. The classic profile of Cabernet Sauvignon tends to be full-bodied wines with high tannins and noticeable acidity that contributes to the wine's aging potential. In cooler climates, Cabernet Sauvignon tends to produce wines with blackcurrant notes that can be accompanied by green bell pepper notes, mint and cedar which will all become more pronounced as the wine ages. In more moderate climates the blackcurrant notes are often seen with black cherry and black olives notes while in very hot climates the current flavors can veer towards the over-ripe and "jammy" side.
