A blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc from four of Napa Valley’s best sub appellations (St. Helena, Oakville, Oak Knoll and Yountville), the Cornerstone 2014 “Benchlands” Cabernet Sauvignon is a stunning example of what a stellar vintage like 2014 can offer. The aromas burst out of the glass with irresistible notes of boysenberry, plum, black cherry and blackberry, all intertwined with complex layers of toasty vanilla, cocoa and black licorice. The full, luscious texture fills the palate with silky tannins and bold flavors of black fruit and baking spices. Plum and blackberry nuances linger on the satiny finish.
