Not sure how I landed a 2016 but I’ll take it. Typical Benoit wine, beautifully balanced, fruit without being over the top. My only concern is the price keeps climbing each vintage. Still worth the $60 though.

Drank 3/38/18. Tasting event. Tasting pour.

Black fruit and pipe tobacco on the very elegant nose. Fruity, but well balanced with sweet black berry, tobacco, and leather on the palate. Medium finish.

4/22/8/4/3 +50 = 91 pts.

Amazing effort that is finally getting out into the shops in NY. I found this gem at Penn Station liquors and wines. Ask Pascual

Rock solid. Nice core of ripe blackberry and currant fruit that speaks of Napa sunshine, but there's a load of freshness too the wine too. Very balanced and poised, lovely floral and sweet spice aromatics, elegant and supple tannin. A terroir driven wine and a great reminder that not all Napa wine is extract, opulence, and oak.
