Bella Vineyards Lily Hill Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very aromatic and floral on the nose which shows off pretty, dusty soil, and steeped dry herbs aromas framing a core of bright sour cherry sour raspberry fruit. On entry this is bright, brambly and aromatic with huge Zin berry fruit. It’s a bit young and tight today with dusty tannins emerging in the mouth making this a bit sharp and angular today. The fruit does show fine persistence finishing with length and acid driven clarity. 91pts

Grapey with black raspberry and some heat on the nose. A little fruitier with some air. Super soft on entry with a bit of tannin hitting at the end, not drying though.
