Benessere St. Helena Estate 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

"Sorridente" means smile in Italian, and it is our hope that this delicious blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Aglianico will make your day a little brighter and cause you to smile. This wine is densely hued and is redolent of cherries, plums, allspice and cocoa powder. The bouquet is loaded with fruit-perfume and vanilla. Decanting will help release the aromatics and allow the palate to develop more rapidly. The mouthfeel is silky-smooth on entry, with substantial fruit, soft-but-firm tannins and a definitive "Italian" . Pair this wine with Veal shank, New York steaks, and Pork tenderloin. Alternatively, it will pair deliciously with pastas with Portobello mushrooms and marinara sauces. It will improve with 3-7 years of bottle age. Sugar: 0.0
