Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2008 Oldfield Series 2Bench Red is densely extracted and ruby in colour. It is powerfully concentrated with black cherries, blackberries, black currant and notes of leafy tobacco, and menthol aromas. This wine has flavours of racy black fruit and delicate herbs. Firm tannins and refreshing acidity ensure that this wine will stand the test of time.

Production Notes
The 2008 Oldfield Series 2Bench Red is the second vintage of this wine to be released. It is a blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 20% Cabernet Franc. The varietals for this wine are kept separate throughout harvest and fermentation. It spends approximately 18 months in new French oak barrels before being bottled and then aged for an additional 18 months in bottle before release.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair the Oldfield Series 2Bench Red with roast beef, prime rib, or a lamb dish. At Miradoro Restaurant try this with the Okanagan grilled rib steak or flat iron steak.

excellent wine, smooth, not overly tannic which Cab Sauv can do on occasion. The Merlot and Cab Franc help to develop the flavor, the black cherriness is just wonderful. For me it's great with roasts and pastas and of course chocolate.
