This newest label from Benoit Touquette is as good as it gets in its class. Surprisingly, it shows as one of the best wines in tasting lineups despite its youth. Silky smooth, it is comprised of fruit from all the Napa Valley grower vineyards Benoit works with for his single vineyard efforts and it is comprised of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. “This unapologetically juicy, hedonistic wine celebrates all the corners of the Napa Valley. The nose shows rich strawberry, blackberry, and chocolate notes that open on the palate to a silky ripeness with excellent density. Velvety tannins support the full body and allow the long, fruit-filled finish to bloom.” As you might remember, Benoit is the winemaker at Realm, Marciano, and Fairest Creature. He also owns Teeter Totter Wines. And while he has amassed 28 (and counting) 100-point wines under his belt, he’s never forgotten his humble roots or his playful sense of humor. 500 cases were produced of this debut bottling.
