With the purchase of the Benchlands Cabernet Sauvignon by the case (12 bottles), enjoy a VIP wine tasting for four guests at Cornerstone Cellars tasting room in downtown Yountville, Napa Valley.

Tasting Notes:
A bright cranberry red in color, this nearly opaque Cabernet Sauvignon is filled with rich blackberry and dark cherry fruit aromas, complemented by notes of dark chocolate, sweet spices and vanilla cinnamon roll, with a warmth that pleasantly softens with time in the decanter. Medium to full in body, its tannins softly grip the palate for a medium, silky finish complemented by black fruits and toasty vanilla. Cellar over the next 8-10 years for future enjoyment!
