The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Benchland Select is a stunner. From the gravelly, loamy soils of the western benchlands in Napa Valley, it was aged 21 months in French oak, but the oak is not overdone, and the result is a wine with gorgeous blueberry, blackberry and cassis fruit, licorice and white chocolate notes, supple tannins, a medium to full-bodied opulence, and an undeniably seductive feeling at its plateau of maturity, where it should hold for another decade. This is a great effort from the Cakebread family to drink over the next decade. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.
