Courtney Benham Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2018
This quintessential Cabernet highlights the expressive terroir throughout Napa, a perfect balance of mountain and valley floor fruit. Structured and fleshy, it is complex and fruit driven through the mid-palate with perfectly integrated tannins, nuances of French oak, with distinct minerality and an elegant finish.
93 Points - James Suckling
Lots of blackberries and wet earth with mahogany and spice. Full-bodied, tight and composed with long, silky tannins. Shows length and depth.
94 Points - Natalie Maclean
From Rutherford, Napa Valley wine region, Courtney Benham 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied Cab fresh on the nose with blackberry, black currant, blueberry, violets and spicy aromas. The wine is a bit shy on the palate and would benefit from some cellar time to unwind flavours. Tannins are firm. Try after 2023.
Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: tourtiere, game burgers, venison stew, grilled goose sausages, roast duck.
