2006 marks the seventh release of our estate blend called “Phenomenon”. The blending of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah is an unusual “phenomenon” in Napa Valley, although these varietals often are the basis for the finest blended Super-Tuscan wines in Italy
The restrained, elegant nose offers hints of rose petal, violet and cocoa. The wine is juicy and expansive on the palate, with a lovely mix of fruit and spicy notes. Flavors of dark berries give way to the signature tart cherry note of Sangiovese, as well as chocolate ganache.
Beautifully clear, dark garnet in color. Hints of rose petal and black cherry on the nose, reminiscent of a Black Forest cake. On the palate, it is like a fine dark chocolate melting on the tongue, or perhaps a ripe strawberry dipped in excellent chocolate. The wine is dense and complex, foretelling a long future of ever increasing dimensions.

This wine displays a rich garnet hue and beautiful, compelling aromas. Notes of black fruits such as blackberry, cassis and black plums are intermixed with hints of cedar, vanilla, and black tea. This Cabernet Sauvignon is irresistible now but will reward cellaring for a decade or more.
With an intense ruby / garnet hue, this wine entices with satisfying aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, blueberry and mocha with hints of lavender. Notes of toasted oak, such as vanilla and spice, add depth to the wine and gently support the fruit character.
Classic Sangiovese aromas of Bing Cherry, leather, and dried roses. The wine is expansive on the palate, with a cornucopia of flavors including blackberry and pomegranate, with hints of dark chocolate and espresso.

"We celebrate our 20th harvest with this inaugural release of John's Promise. An estate-grown, Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend, this wine embodies that promise. It’s densely structured with blackberry fruit flavors complemented by hints of mocha and clove that linger on the finish." - John Benish
This wine boasts a deep, dark garnet hue and complex aromas of blueberry, vanilla, allspice, almond, blackberry and violet. Delicious flavors are supported by firm tannins that are nevertheless graceful on the palate. Mocha and dark chocolate notes emerge on the finish
