2017 Barrel 32 Zinfandel

Wine Enthusiast
This giant wine offers serious meaty, peppery aromas and absolutely mouthfilling blackberry and grilled beef flavors that are wrapped in firm tannins. Mineral and metallic accents compete for attention with wood smoke and black pepper. Best through 2027. 93 points - Cellar Selection

2017 Block 10 Zinfandel

Wine Enthusiast
This bold and ripe-tasting wine feels layered and creamy, and packs plenty of blackberry and raspberry flavors on a full body. It retains a smooth texture that's tightened just enough with a touch of tannin. Best through 2025. 93 points - Editors' Choice

Wine Advocate
Medium ruby, the 2017 Zinfandel Block 10 is slow to unfurl to scents of cherry pie and multi-berry preserves with touches of cinnamon, citrus peel, earth and spices. The palate is medium to full-bodied and packed with spicy fruit layers, gently chewy and fresh with a long, spicy finish. 93 points

2017 Lily Hill Zinfandel

Wine Enthusiast
Delicious, mouthfilling flavors of just-crushed blackberries and raspberries give this wine a big presence, while a full body and moderate tannins are firm enough to balance the juicy, boisterous fruit. 93 points

Wine Advocate
The 2017 Zinfandel Lilly Hill Estate has aromas of roasted cherries, apricot and boysenberries with notes of earth, cinnamon and orange  peel. Medium to full-bodied, it has a chewy frame and spicy flavors, with good freshness to lift the finish. Give it another year in bottle. 92 points

2017 Florence Zinfandel

Wine Enthusiast
Rich, ripe and full bodied, this powerful and concentrated wine overflows with blackberry jam, and peppery spices. It's moderately tannic, providing good texture and mouthfeel to back up the opulent fruit flavors.  92 points

Connoisseurs' Guide To California Wine
Very ripe, but sporting wonderfully pure, berry-like fruit and a full dollop of creamy oak in its layered and deep, fairly polished aromas, Bella's Florence Vineyard bottling tips even further to ripeness once in the mouth and, although viscous and coating, lets heat get the upper hand at the end. It is rich beyond question, but that richness comes at a cost, and, it must necessarily be matched up with the most flavorful main courses or, better yet, with strong cheeses. 90 points

2017 Rock's Edge Zinfandel

Wine Enthusiast
This smooth, yummy wine blends black-plum and milk-chocolate flavors for a supple, rich profile. It's full bodied, light in terms of tannin and seems to melt in the mouth. 91 points

2017 Maple Vineyard - Annie's Block Zinfandel

Connoisseurs' Guide To California Wine
The family preference for full ripeness comes through loud and clear here, yet this wine's riper traits never get ahead of its very deep and continuous fruit either on the nose or in its wonderfully rich and extremely long-lasting flavors. After a full and slightly supple palatal start, this one is roughed up a bit by evident, acid-lifted tannins and a touch of late-arriving heat, the effects of which will diminish with further age, and we have no doubt whatsoever that its tantalizing fruit will command center stage as it gains in complexity and polish for upwards of seven or eight more years. 92 points

2017 Trot + Follow Zinfandel

Connoisseurs' Guide To California Wine
Just as ripe as its two 2017 cellarmates, Bella's Trot + Follow Zin is a more structured and overtly tannic wine and one whose fruit puts up a good fight against its fairly strident, Petite Sirah-like astringency but, for the time being, is just a bit overmatched. It clearly commands a lengthier stay in the cellar than either, and, while it has the stuffing to repay a good half-decade or more of age, it is likely to remain a somewhat sturdier and sinewy example of the variety than a wine that features wide-open richness and juicy fruit. 89 points
