SKU: 5711501850481170 Categories: , ,


This blend of grapes comes from the benchlands of Cakebread’s vineyards in Oakville and Rutherford-including Hill Ranch, which surrounds the Rutherford home of Jack and Dolores Cakebread. Benchlands are the narrow regions that mark the transition from a valley’s floor to steeper mountain slopes. This geographic position offers distinctive soil profiles for good root development, as well as mountain shade that protects grapes from extreme conditions, allowing them to ripen slowly and steadily. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 22 months in French oak barrels, 60% new. No scores yet for this 2018 but with prime Rutherford and Oakville fruit from the outstanding 2018 vintage it won’t be long before the raves start rolling in. This wine shows aromas of blackberry and mocha on the nose. Concentrated, intense flavors of ripe boysenberry and blackberry with notes of fig fill the palate. Elegant, structured tannins add depth and dimension with a round, rich dark chocolate, dark berry finish. 750 ml
