Benchmark Oakville Cabernet has aromas of dark black cherry, blackberry, blackcurrant, chocolate, black pepper, leather, and a little smokiness. The palate was full-bodied, with medium tannins, and lush with sweet black and dark red fruit along with savoury baking spices, liquorice and an easy, elegant finish. Not for long ageing, this wine is ready to go now. 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot oak-aged for 22 months.
