WineScores' Review

Generous, supple, potpourri.
This vintage of the 2Bench Red is made from 28% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Franc, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot from the Tinhorn Creek Golden Mile bench home vineyard and their Black Sage bench Diamondback vineyard.
Each vintage it changes and this year Cabernet plays the dominant role.
Sweet cherries, vanilla, baking spice and leather roll into a potpourri of cedar chips and dried rose petals. It is supple and spiced; the palate an echo of the nose. Juicy and very approachable, a complete and mouthfilling red.
Pair: grilled steaks, robust stews, game dishes or hard cheeses.
