Benovia Zinfandel 2014


SKU 02563


This wine exhibits lively aromas of vine-ripened blackberries, boysenberry and baking spices. On the palate the wine's exuberant fruit is in perfect harmony with bright acidity, fine grained tannins and a spice-laden finish. Utilizing Burgundian production techniques produce an elegant and restrained Zinfandel, while still capturing the intensity of the varietal. This wine is delicious upon release but will benefit from 3-7 years of cellar aging.

Wine AdvocateDeep garnet in color, the 2014 Zinfandel has baked blackberries and blueberries on the nose with touches of incense, dried herbs and Chinese five spice. Full-bodied, rich, soft and voluptuous, this is textbook comfort wine with plenty of warm, cuddly fruit and great length.
