Bella Vineyards is a small, family-owned winery in Dry Creek valley specializing in limited production lots of zinfandel and Rhone Varietals.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Editorial Reviews for Bella Vineyards & Wine Caves Syrah Lily Hill Estate
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.
