Our 2001 Benchland Select Cabernet Sauvignon offers a seductive aroma of perfectly ripened black fruits laden with scents of black figs, chocolate and smoky, toasty oak. On the palate, the wine delivers opulent, mouth-filling, ripe blackberry and black plum flavors balanced by firm tannins and crisp natural acidity. This lavishly flavored Napa Valley Cabernet, packed with deep, lush fruit, is delicious to drink now, but will handsomely repay 7-10 years of cellaring.

Wine EnthusiastThe big '01s are still rolling out. This one's very fine and Oakville-y, showing well-oaked, lush black currant and cassis fruit, with a cocoa finish. It has soft, intricately sweet tannins. It's quite delicious now, but seems balanced enough to age through the medium term. Drink before 2010.

Wine SpectatorAromas of herb, stewed plum and earth turn dry and leathery, making this one tough to swallow and leaving little hope for a future. Drink now through 2009. 500 cases made.
