Bennett Lane Primus Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2003
The top cuvee of Bennett Lane, the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Primus Reserve exhibits lots of toasty oak, tar and a subtle hint of oxidation in the background. Nevertheless, there is a lot of delicious, succulent fruit, but it is slightly fragile, so owners are advised to drink it up over the near term.
Marked by melted black licorice, dry gravelly tannins and fading dark berry fruit, this is intriguing, but at or past its peak.-2003 California Cabernet blind retrospective (July 2013). Drink now through 2019. 375 cases made.
