    Winemaker's Notes:

    Elegant layers of pure black cherry and cassis fruit are offset by notes of cedar and coffee in this wine's flavors and aromas, which are set in a well integrated yet firmly focused tannic structure.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is rich and plush, supple and harmonious, with generous plum, black cherry and wild berry fruit that runs deep and persistent, repeating the dark fruit themes and ending with firm yet gentle tannins.

    The star here is the beautiful 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Benchland Select. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by aromas of gravelly earth intermixed with notions of lead pencil shavings, blue as well as blackberries, and spice. Medium-bodied with solid yet ripe tannins, good structure, a Bordeaux-like weight, and a clean, pure finish, it displays admirable purity and texture. It will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age, and should drink well for two decades.
