Benessere Zinfandel Sams Cuvee Napa Valley 2006

External Review by Sam's Wine:

"Purple hue to the eye. Notes of char and chocolate on the attack. Grows fresher with time, revealing confited red cherries and a bouquet of roses--is this really California Zinfandel? Lively and energetic, yet rich and ripe--decidedly more European in its complexity, yet still retains an American exuberance that is Zinfandel's own. If only more producers can craft a wine like this!"

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.
