2007 Phenomenon- Benessere Vineyards

From the creative mind of Winemaker, Jack Stuart comes this medium bodied, exquisite blend composed of 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Sangiovese, 11% Merlot and 2% Syrah. Offering a polished bouquet of sweet perfume, toasted oak,  luscious juicy fruit and savory herbaceousness, this faultless blend is laced with flavors of leather, tobacco and a spectrum of both refined red and dark fruit. Intertwined with an immaculate mouthfeel, silky, firm tannin and a tart cherry finish, this wine was absolutely heavenly with medium-rare Filet Mignons off the grill.  Keep Drinking and Keep Believing. 

2008 Benessere Vineyards Napa Valley Zinfandel- Black Glass Vineyard

Full bodied with flavors of maple, tobacco, vanilla, compact spectrum of dark fruit and well executed frequency of oak. Definitely have to decant for at least an hr, but nonetheless, a very good Zin; Especially someone seeking a non jammy, not overly fruit forward style Zin . Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.
