Bella Vineyards & Wine Caves Syrah Lily Hill Estate 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This has a lovely smokiness on the nose with some blackberry pie wafting through...gorgeous palette which is smooth and just the right amount of spicy. Incredible svelte finish!

Made from a blend of Lilly Hill and Belle Canyon fruit, along with grapes from the Sonoma Coast, this is exceptionally good wine for a "generic" Sonoma County appellation. Lovely deep, opaque purple color, big spicy aromas and flavors hinting at roasted meat, ground black pepper, black berries, vanilla, and blueberry crisp. Full-bodied but soft and (to my taste buds, anyway) ready to drink right now. It will be interesting to taste the single-vineyard Syrahs coming out later.
