2015 Benessere Vineyards Collins Holystone Vineyards Zinfandel
2015 was the 4th year of the drought in California. This made the growing season quick and fast. Luckily we got just enough rain is the spring to feed the vineyard. The yeild was low but the end product was exciting. The Collins Holystone Vineyard neighbors Benessere Vineyards. The gnarly vines on this property were planted in 1923 and have aged almost a hundred years. This leads to a mix of berries and cherries on the boquet. The mouth feel is smooth and compliments the red fruit and herbs that linger on the pallete. Enjoy this wine over the next five to seven years.
