Benessere Zinfandel Napa Valley Black Glass Vineyard 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Smoky and herbal on the nose with note of brushfire and curranty fruit with hints of pineapple, cinnamon and white pepper. A bit on the soft side in the mouth, easy drinking with licorice and cocoa accents up front that segue into a black cherry, black currant mid-palate that shows a touch of firm tannin. Spicy on the finish with good cherry fruit but it’s a bit short and slightly bitter. 86pts

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.
