Bella Vineyards and Wine Caves
Variety: 100% zinfandel
Sensory Notes: This beautifully structured wine offers a gorgeous mix of sweet and savory elements, with layers of earth and leather underscoring juicy flavors of cherry, strawberry and red licorice. Bright and lively on the palate, but also, rich and mouth-filling, it draws to a long, satisfying conclusion.
Vineyard Notes: The Rocky Ridge Vineyard is perched high above Lake Sonoma and the surrounding hills. Its high elevation, along with the thin, rocky soils that give this area its name, provide an excellent location for growing intense, low-yielding grapevines. The Westphall Vineyard in the Rockpile AVA produces smaller clusters with excellent varietal characteristics.
Cellar Recommendations: Enjoy this wine through 2025.
