Benessere Zinfandel Bk Collins-Old Vines Napa Valley 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Creamy black cherry fruit backed up with slightly medicinal notes greet the nose, all accented with gentle soil tones and hints of briary herbs and vanilla. Nice and tight on entry with good focus and energy across the palate. This delivers finely balanced black cherry fruit across the palate, framed with modest but firm tannins and accented with licorice, cocoa and wood spice tones. There’s a fine freshness to this and wonderful varietal character. This finishes with great briary blackberry fruit that lingers and ends on a nice earthy spice note. 91pts

Benessere Vineyards:
Benessere” is the Italian word for well being and prosperity. This is the feeling we try to embody at Benessere Winery. We are a small family owned, high end producer of Italian varietals, located in the north end of Napa Valley on the valley floor where the soil is well suited for growing excellent wine. We have expanded our selection of varietals to include Zinfandel, Merlot, Syrah and Muscat di Canelli. We also produce an outstanding blend called Phenomenon.
