This is a quintessential old vine zinfandel, made from our rare, century-old vineyard. Grown in a unique terroir, exhibiting the special characteristics of its microclimate, there is good reason why the Big River zinfandel is the flagship of Bella Vineyards. It is a richly-structured, amply-endowed, mouth-filling experience of monumental proportions. This Big River zin has a slight hint of sweet vanilla oak and profound dark fruit, flavors of blackberries, black cherries, mocha and a balanced earthy complexity. It finishes with an extended silky finish that makes it a wine that will delight and astound for years to come. Enjoy through 2013.
