2010 Wine Spectator - 92 points - Fresh and vibrant, this is juicy with raspberry and cherry flavors that glide through polished tannins, finishing with resiliency, intensity and impressive persistence. Drink now through 2018. H.S.

The Jory Bench Reserve is an elegant wine with intense aromatics and floral notes on the nose. Savory elements balance the forward berry/cherry fruit on the palate while tannins add structure and focus. The rich finish is long and lingering.

2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

Wine Enthusiast "Editor's Choice" - 91 points

The 2008 vintage was marked by a late start and a late finish. A compressed growing season contributed to smaller cluster sizes and yields that would obliterate any reasonable business plan. Fortunately for you (but not so much for us), we've never really been fond of business plans - we just do our best to grow great wine. This bottling again highlights the bright fruit of our Dijon 115 clone (55 percent), with some Wädenswil (20 percent), Pommard (15 percent) and Mariafeld (10 percent) adding a bit of complexity to the wine. The ripe fruit gives a hint of bramble and blackberry in addition to our site's characteristic bright pie cherry flavors. Despite the deep color, the wine is quite delicate, yet it has a playful edginess that we appreciate. The fruit was harvested on October 15 and 27, 2008, with an average brix at harvest of 24.1. After fermentation, the wine was aged in small oak barrels for 10 months before bottling on September 23, 2009.
