The Best of Bella Vineyards!!

1. 2015 Bella "The Crossing" Sonoma County - blend of Carignan 34%, Zinfandel 26%, Syrah 22%, Petit Verdot 9%, Grenache 9% grapes
Named in honor of the blend of fruit from both our Alexander Valley and Dry Creek vineyards, this textured, rich red effortlessly combines Big River’s syrah and grenache with Lily Hill’s carignan and old-vine syrah. Big River Ranch, with its deep red soils and hot summer days, produces big, complex wines. The syrah from Lily Hill was picked from a tiny section — block 19, which sits on the east-facing slope and allows for maximum drainage of the soil, providing dark, intense fruit. Winery

2. 2015 Bella Block 10 Zinfandel Russian River Valley
Perched on a hillside above the Russian River, this picturesque benchland property is home to Block 10 — 14 acres of old vine zinfandel planted in 1905. The 2014 grapes were ripe with concentrated flavors. Early morning fog typically settles over the vineyard allowing for a longer growing season whilst developing compexity in the grapes. Winery

3. 2016 Bella Lily Hill Estate Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley
This is a beautifully structured expression of Dry Creek Valley zinfandel with alluring aromas of ripe strawberry, blackberry, raspberry, cinnamon and baking spices. The luxurious, bright fruit continues on the broad, mouthfilling palate, gliding to a long, silky finish with hints of clove and forest floor. Winery

4. 2013 Bella Hillside CUVÉE Red Wine Sonoma County
The Hillside Cuvée is a blend from our two estate properties: Big River Ranch, with its deep red soils and hot summer days befitting for syrah, and Lily Hill Estate, whose steep hillside allows for substantial drainage and beneficial stressing of the vines. Together, these vineyards exhibit the
climate and terroir needed to produce exceptional zinfandel and Rhone varietals. Winery

5. 2015 Bella Zinfandel "Hills & Benches" Dry Creek Valley
Exhibits ripe and vibrant fruit aromas and flavors with lush layers of blueberry and bright pomegranate that are supported by good balancing acidity and oak-inspired notes of vanilla bean. Pairs well with grilled meats, BBQ, or Italian fare. Total Wine

6. 2014 Bella Zinfandel Sonoma County
Aromas of cacao and toasted walnut mingle with red cherry in this deep garnet-colored zinfandel. A lush, juicy mouthfeel leads into a bright finish, hinting of wild thyme and cranberry. The touch of syrah brings
richness to the palate, while the addition of syrah rounds out this beautiful wine. Winery
