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.
