Red Wine by Benovia from Sonoma County, California. This wine exhibits lively aromas of vine-ripened blackberries, black raspberry and baking spices. On the palate the wines exuberant fruit is in perfect harmony with bright acidity, fine grained tannin and a spice-laden finish. Utilizing Burgundian 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. Planted in 1970, the Cohn Estate Vineyard is planted on a steep, rocky slope on our estate at the northern end of the Russian River Valley. We dry-farm these gnarled vines to produce small and compact clusters with incredible fruit intensity and bright acidity.
