"The stunning 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Benchland Select is a cross-village blend of Oakville and Rutherford fruit. Aromas of graphite, burning embers, crushed rocks/flint, plums, licorice and blackberries are vaguely reminiscent of a top vintage of La Mission-Haut-Brion. Full-bodied, deep, chewy flavors, admirable purity and stunning concentration result in a profound Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 20+ years. Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon of this quality rarely exists at this price point."
