  • 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

  • We're heading back to (my favorite wine region) Russian River the first weekend in October and are looking for advice on what to do and what to expect.  We've been to RRV several times but only during the off season.  Is there anything special we should do at this time of year, and conversely, is there anything we should avoid?

  • Two Hands Direct Shiraz Bella S Garden Barossa Vly 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Inky, dark red-black. Clear and brilliant. Big, intense nose of dark fruits and berries. A bit of oak, vanilla and toasty spice. Sweet blueberries and a hint of anise. A very slight whiff of dill that blew off after a few minutes. Loads of dark fruit accompanied by some spice and cedar notes. Medium to medium long finish with black licorice on t... Read More

  •  We had a plan, get in early, get out early. It seems like a lot of people ... What a joy to drink.Next was Bella where I tasted two wines but could not say which two they were. Was I getting tipsy? I remembered them being big brutes with big fruit, lots of spice but lots of fruit.We made a point of stopping at Mutt Lynch because they are dog l... Read More

  • Ruby Hill Bella Gemma 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This dark, sweet, fortified Port-like wine is a classic; rich, highly extracted and long finish. Very nice plum and spice. Heavy tannin but is balanced by the RS. Lots of sediment for such a young wine--odd. Not quite as nice as their 2009. A bit awkward. My rating -- 87. Read More
