Ripe, dramatically concentrated aromas of boysenberry, blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, coupled with seductive chocolate and loam scents, introduce a lush palate of luxurious dark berry, cassis, black fig and dark chocolate flavors framed by round, supple tannins. Seamlessly structured and beautifully balanced, with a very long, sumptuous finish, the 2013 Benchland Select is irresistibly delicious now, but will handsomely reward another 7-10 years of bottle age.
Pairs well with rich beef, pork or lamb dishes.
