Named after the Italian word for "well-being," Benessere Vineyards is a small, family-owned winery that uses quality Napa Valley fruit in its production. The 2013 Black Glass Zinfandel is a complex wine that transforms over time. Its initial aromas of ripe raspberry, cherry and blackberry deepen upon being aired for a couple hours and complement the velvety texture and medium body. The overall plummy and jammy flavors are accented with a tangy acidity and finish with a hint of spice.
