  • It's not often that I have a plan. Well, a detailed plan at least.. Some ... Vineyard Zin smells like the Bella Maple Vineyard Zin kind of way. I’m telling you folks that some of the greatest examples of terroir in California are found in Zinfandel. OK, shoot the messenger. I freely admit that I am still early in my learning curve in regards t... Read More

  • Bella Zinfandel Late Harvest Special Release 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Tight on the nose with slow to unfold aromas of chocolate, balsamic, sweet, fresh, blackberry and lovely slightly jammy black cherry fruit. Lush, juicy and dark on entry, this picks up a creamy tone on the midpalate followed by raspberry, dried berry and slightly grapy flavors. Featuring super balance and a lovely tannic structure, this is a ki... Read More

  • Bella Zinfandel Block Ten Alexander Valley 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Big aromatics greet the nose, all wooly and wild and filled with peppery spice and alcoholic heat. Big, a bit hot, rich and chewy and dense and meaty on the palate with dark stewy plums and some red fruit highlights, this is just too sweet and alcoholic for my palate. 85pts Read More

  • Bella Barrel 32 Zinfandel 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly marked by oak exhibiting aromas that are a little toasty and creamy with dark slightly jammy and very wild black fruit that shows some, dark mineral and root beer float top notes. Mouth filling, seamless and a bit dense, this is packed with RC cola inflected candied black cherry and blackberry fruit. Big and polished, this finishes with l... Read More

  • Bella Zinfandel Rocky Ridge Rockpile 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Cola, sassafras, dark chocolate and even a touch of black olive emerge on the nose adding detail and complexity to the core of blackcurrant and black cherry fruit. This is built on its acids, so clear and fresh in the mouth with tons of firm black fruit supported by herb, green anise seed and fennel notes followed by a long taut finish. This is... Read More

  • Bella Vineyards Lily Hill Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2010

    Snoothrank:

    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. Its a bit young and tight today with dusty tannins emerging in the mouth making this a bit sharp and angular tod... Read More

  • Bella Vineyards & Wine Caves Zinfandel Big River Ranch 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This is spicy on the nose with perfumed oak tones and lovely nuanced toasted cumin and coriander accent to the core of dark, oily fruit. In the mouth this is surprisingly supple and slinky, and rich with a core of wild cherry and plummy fruit that remains very tight and almost chewy, dense but not weighty. This gives the impression of being a li... Read More

  • Bella Zinfandel Maple Vineyard Dcv 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A bit tight on the firm nose that shows a dry earthy edge to the sweet cherry and raspberry fruit. This shows off power and elegance in the mouth, decidedly red fruited with nice herbal freshness. The tannins are small, a little angular and balanced by decent acids supporting a somewhat dense and full midpalate. The firm finish turns richly blac... Read More

  • Bella Zinfandel Hills and Benches Dcv 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Candied dark fruit thats a bit leathery and coffee toned greets the nose along with a nice oak note, nutty, cafe au lait, and gingery spiced. Big yet bright in the mouth with super fruit here, glassy and firm, hard candy like cherry and blackberry flavored with some cracked pepper spice and a little licorice accent note. The tannins are very wel... Read More
