Editorial Reviews for Bella Vineyards & Wine Caves Zinfandel Big River Ranch
Oaky and dark on the nose with notes of fudge, dried fruits and mocha all topped with a eucalyptus edge. Rich and mouth-filling, this is a touch soft in the mouth and has many of the same slightly dried fruit- and amber-toned flavors that were apparent with the nose. The fruit on the back end is lean with some sour cherry notes, but is overshadowed by tough oaky and chocolate notes. Well made but not a lot to actually like here. 82pts
The 2009 Big River Ranch zin is a classic example of old-vine zinfandel at it's best. These pre-prohibition vines produce some of the most luscious, big textured zin we have ever encountered!
