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... 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.

Creamy, toasty oak adds a pleasant overlay and hints at what's to come, as the complexity of the flavors centers on currant, red and dark berry and licorice. Ends on the oaky side. Drink now through 2029. 1,800 cases... Creamy, toasty oak adds a pleasant overlay and hints at what's to come, as the complexity of the flavors centers on currant, red and dark berry and licorice.

Earthy and spicy aromas with dried-strawberry undertones follow through to a medium to full body and a savory finish. Drink and enjoy.

Winery

Cakebread Cellars

Jack and Dolores Cakebread bought their first vineyard in 1972, a 22-acre site. The next year, they founded their Rutherford-based winery, Cakebread Cellars. The winery now holds 1,100 acres spread over 13 sites in Napa Valley and Anderson Valley with about 560 of those acres under vine. Cakebread is still owned and operated by the family.

Cakebread Cellars is best-known for its Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. It also produces Anderson Valley Pinot Noir, Lake County Zinfandel and Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Merlot.

The wine styles are flavorful and generally fruit-driven, but still reflective of terroir. New French oak is used moderately and enhances the wine without obscuring natural complexity.
