Bella stuns with 2009 Lily Hill!

Bella WinesThe new vintage of this much coveted old-vine zinfandel, is sourced from the oldest block of vines above the Bella vineyard caves.  This block was planted in 1915, and close to it’s centennial age!

The 2009 Lily Hill Zinfandel teases the nose with fine whiffs of black stone fruit.  I would call this wine silky on the palate with soft, velvet-like tannins.  On the mid palate this full-loaded wine is bursting with luscious dark fruit with a touch of peppery spiciness that lingers throughout the entire tasting process into this long finish of red plums and espresso. This is a lush and beautiful expression of old-vine Lily Hill zinfandel, overflowing with juicy flavors and complexity.  I would say that this wine rivals the best Bella has made yet to date.  As always, this is the smallest production in years.
