Benziger Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma
Benzigers Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon has flavors of wild cherry, raspberry, dark chocolate and cedar. In the mouth the wine is smooth and balanced with a full body and lasting finish. Enjoy this Cabernet with grilled meats, hearty stew or eggplant ragout.
Grape lots were blended from several benchland and mountain ranches that naturally yield smaller crops and result in intensely colored and flavored wine. Vine canopies were carefully managed to protect the grapes from direct sunlight while the fruit was allowed an extended hang time to fully ripen. In the winery they used a variety of techniques to maximize flavor intensity while managing tannin levels including cold soaking, pump over, and varying fermentation lengths and temperatures. The wine was aged in oak for 16 months.

This wine was made with grapes grown by certified sustainable farming methods. Their sustainable philosophy promotes natural vineyard management, restoration of the land and biodiversity on the estate. They believe these practices result in wines that reflect the authentic flavors, aromas and character of the vineyard.
