Bella Vineyards and Wine Caves
Varietal: 96% zinfandel, 4% petite sirah
Appellation: Dry Creek Valley
Sensory Notes: Bright and lush, the 2013 Lily Hill zinfandel exhibits classic old-vine Dry Creek aromatics of raspberry bush, blackcurrant and herbs de provence. A silky texture defines the mouthfeel, intertwined with toasted walnut and vanilla. The incorporation of a small amount of petite sirah pushes the finish into rich, substantial length.
Vineyard Notes: Lily Hill Vineyard has become synonymous with making wines of elegance and substance. From the first plantings in 1915 to the blocks planted in 2001, this hillside, sloping vineyard benefits from cooler nights and warmer days.
Cellar Recommendation: Enjoy now through 2022.
