Production: 1684 cases
Date Tasted: November 11th, 2016
Tasting Notes: Aged for 18 months in French oak barrels and then for a further 12 months in bottle prior to release, the 2Bench Red is a drink-now delight with lightly-smoked, mannered tannins and a dark fruit'n'herb-infused profile on the expressive nose and lively palate. The final blend for the 2013 vintage is comprised of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and for the first time in recent memory. 6% of Malbec was included. Together the varieties create a complete wine with good complexity and length, perfect for holiday entertaining or Sunday roasts. Drink now-2020.
