    Winemaker's Notes:

    #2 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010

    Color: Deep and impenetrable, red to black.

    Aroma: Lifted aromas of deep red fruits, plums, cinnamon, licorice and earthy spice. Underneath subtle notes of chocolate, tar and moss complete the bouquet.

    Palate: The wine is robust and rich with a balance that exemplifies the hallmarks of the finest Barossa vineyards. Red fruits and plums dominate a tight palate with earthy char and chocolate that then finishes long with fine tannins and bright acidity. Will drink well now and will improve with medium term cellaring.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dark and dense, but emerges with vivid color and bright flavors of raspberry, black cherry and a hint of peach, beautifully tinged with cocoa, licorice and mineral notes as the finish sails on impressively. Drink now through 2018.

    Deep, bright ruby. Seductive aromas of dark berries, violet, incense and dusty cocoa powder. Concentrated and tactile, with superb depth and noteworthy definition and cut to the flavors of cherry compote, dark berry liqueur and candied violet. Wonderfully broad on the long, expansive finish. The tannins are smooth and harmonious, fading quickly into the fruit. Great fruit and florality here.

    Michael Twelf­tree and Richard Mintz run this négociant operation based in Barossa. Bella's Garden is their top selection of the region's fruit, presented in a supple, rich style. While not shy (as its stated as 16 percent abv) the wine is red fruited, with plum flavors cooled by a eucalyptus spice. The finish gains distiction from earthy, mineral-inflected tannin, balanced and long. For short ribs.
