About This Wine

“This is a benchmark wine.”

That’s the opinion of winemaker Jim Regusci, who is one-third of the team behind Nine North Wine Company, the maker of Twenty Bench Cabernet Sauvignon. The Twenty Bench label was established just after the turn of the millennium, and it has represented both high quality and great value in every vintage.

The 2010 Twenty Bench Cab was crafted from grapes grown in a handful of vineyards around the Napa Valley, and includes small amounts of Merlot and Cabernet Franc in the blend. It’s a perfectly balanced wine with firm structure and silky tannins.

The cuvee spent a year in French oak barrels — 30 percent of which were being filled for the very first time — so there are engaging vanilla spice and cigar box notes to complement the rich fruit flavors. “There’s great finesse on the palate,” Regusci added, “and we’re proud to have this wine represent our 10th anniversary vintage.”

About Cabernet Sauvignon

Deep color and richness with the potential to age a long time, and better still if aged in oak before bottling. Classic flavors blackcurrant, plum, cherry and spice. The most popular varietal of red wine in America.
