    Winemaker's Notes:

    #35 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

    The color is black with deep, deep red rim. Restrained on release, with deep red fruits, dusty cinnamon spice, liquorice and earth. Underneath are subtle notes of smoky cedar and chocolate.

    Tight and elegant from the start. Fine red fruits that gently roll through the palate, with earthy cedary notes. The fine tannins and acid support the mid- to late-palate and slowly all of the flavor and structure subsides evenly after a 60 second finish. The 2009 season was a glorious season and this Bella's could be the best to date. Be Patient.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Complex, focused, fresh and distinctive for its mineral-accented cherry and plum flavors, hinting at licorice, bay leaf, black tea and pepper as the finish lingers against refined, mouthcaressing tannins. This has depth and lingers well. Drink now through 2019.

    Opaque violet. Powerful, almost candied aromas of boysenberry, mulberry and cherry-vanilla, with subtle hints of smoked meat and cola. Deeply concentrated, juicy black and blue fruit flavors show impressive palate-coating power. The very long, sweet finish features a strong blueberry quality, with velvety tannins sneaking in at the very end.

    International Wine Cellar

    The 2009 Bella's Garden Shiraz has a deep purple-black color and an earthy / savory nose of underbrush, fertile earth, bacon and black olives over warm cassis and blackberries plus hints of dried plums and soy. Big, powerful and full bodied in the mouth, it has a medium level of velvety tannins and good line of very crisp acid, enlivening the long, richly-fruited finish.

    The Wine Advocate

    This wine's sweet fruit edges toward raisined super-ripeness, but it maintains its drive. The balance is harmonious, the texture complete rather than thick, leaving room for food. Serve it with thick-cut lamb chops.
