Benziger 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is elegant and playful, delicious with grilled meats


Benziger 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon
Sonoma County, California

This Cabernet Sauvignon is elegant but playful. With structured tannins, it works great with grilled meats at summer barbecues. Blackberry and cherry aromas give way to chocolate, dried herbs and spices like cinnamon and vanilla. The flavor of fruit cobbler, layered with mocha and wood spice, leads to a rich finish.
