Tinhorn Creek Vineyards is proud to announce that its 2013 Oldfield Series 2Bench Red has been awarded a Double Gold designation by the San Francisco International Wine Competition (SFIWC).

Reserved for the finest wines in the world, the Double Gold rating comes from the SFIWC – one of the world’s most respected and longstanding international wine competitions. Now in its 37th year, the competition has been integral in setting the standard for expert wine judging, attracting over 4,200 entries from 31 countries across the globe.

“The Oldfield Series 2Bench Red is one of our greatest achievements,” says Sandra Oldfield, CEO and Founder of Tinhorn Creek Vineyards. “Our goal has always been to inspire innovation and improvement with every vintage and this award makes us very confident in the work we’re doing.”

This year, the 2013 Oldfield Series 2Bench Red achieved a Double Gold medal and 94 points rating from the SFIWC’s panel of esteemed judges and wine critics. A blend of five Bordeaux varietals (47% cabernet sauvignon, 24% cabernet franc, 20% merlot, 6% malbec, and 3% petit verdot) sourced from Tinhorn Creek’s estate vineyards on the Black Sage and Golden Mile Benches, this unique blend has earned its place as an international double gold winner. Its full-bodied, balanced and powerful palate boasts a complex aromatic range from spice and dark fruit to tobacco. The 2Bench Red’s dark fruit and herb-infused profile is a perfect fit for pairing with richer meat dishes.

Tinhorn Creek’s 2013 Oldfield Series 2Bench Red retails for $30.49 and can be cellared for up to 15 years. Bottles and cases are available for purchase online at Tinhorn Creek’s wine store.
