Twenty Bench Napa Valley 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon (Revisited) $19.99, 90 points, was a deep ruby red grading bright red toward the bleeding wine ring.
Aromas of black currant, cedar, coffee, and violets were excellent.
The Twenty Bench Napa Valley 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon was surprising light-bodied (medium) with fair acidity, light and sweet tannins, modest silky texture, and flavors reflective of the aromas plus hints of anise, cola, and spearmint which were good.
Finished long on the trailing palate, easy spice notes, and a sweet-spot 14.5% alcohol.
Some thoughts on this wine:
I think this Cabernet Sauvignon has peaked, but I also think it has a few more drinkable years left.
I'm not sure Twenty Bench is sold in NH anymore, but I understand that they now produce a Chardonnay.
