A luxurious blend of three components from the Estate, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Our inaugural release of this wine was in 2014, led by second generation vintner Allison Steltzner and her husband Sam Sharp. They drew inspiration from the landscape of the property in creating Bench Vineyards project. This wine provides amazing texture with lovely blue and red fruits, with a long elegant finish. The aromas are complex with notes of dark fruit, violets, ripe plums and a hint of toasted cedar. On the palette this wine has flavors of rich and smokey pipe tobacco and a slight hint of cedar. It is wine is well balanced with a beautiful structure and manages to glide smoothly across the palate, finishing with a long lingering finish.
