The Nine North Wine Company is a portfolio of small lot wines from California's Napa Valley, North Coast, Central Coast and Lodi viticultural appellations.
Proprietor-négociants, Chris Nickolopoulos and Elijah Pfister work with a handful of California's most respected grape growers and wineries selecting the finest rows, plots, barrels, and lots from each vintage. They strive to blend these selections into finished wines which carefully balance ripeness and acidity to achieve both regional typicity and unique, expressive flavor profiles.
The 2018 Twenty Bench Cabernet Sauvignon has a ripe black cherry core, twining with blackberry syrup, a subtle minerality, with the smokiness of charred French oak on the nose. The mouth is creamy and dense, with layered of juicy berries, the darkest of dark chocolates, rich espresso and black pepper. The wine is well-balanced and drinking well in its youth.
Composition: 95% Cabernet, 5% Merlot. Appellation: North Coast (Napa, Sonoma and Suisun Valleys). Six months in used American and French oak barrels.
