Finally, another chance to revisit Bennett Valley. Ran across this wine at a local wine shop and could not help myself at the tariff ($15).
Upon first sniff was worried this wine was flawed as the bouquet and palate were dominated by sour/stewed notes. Set aside.
Revisted, after 15 minutes. Wine came together nicely. Pronounced stemminess coupled with riper fruit have integrated nicely to create an interesting flavor profile that lies outside either new or old world classifications.
Wanted more minerality and depth (which is what I enjoyed from prior examples from Bennett Valley), but that might not be a fair request given the price.
