Bella Vineyards and Wine Caves
Varietal: 91% syrah, 9% grenache
Appellation: Alexander Valley
Sensory Notes: This wine boasts an intense nose of smoked meats, and vanilla. Dark fruit of plum, black currant and savory ham bone culminating with well integrated velvety tannins which linger to a satisfying experience
Vineyard Notes: Big River Ranch, with its deep red soils and hot summer days, produces big, complex wines. This unique benchland vineyard sits just above the Russian River, which gives cooler evenings and unique, sandy loam soils. The longer hangtime for the fruit allows this syrah to fully develop its full-bodied flavors.
Cellar Recommendation: Enjoy now through 2023.
