    Winemaker's Notes:

    #3 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

    Black to the core, with a magenta rim. This wine has aromas of cherries, plums, chocolate, cedar, spice and scorched earth. Very seductive. Dense plums explode onto the palate with spice, subtle chocolate and tar. The fine tannin backbone rolls on and on from the mid palate, surrounded by fresh juiciness, dark fruit and subtle oak.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Pepper, clove and plum flavors weave through dense dark cherry and roasted plum fruit, melding together smoothly on the complex and expansive finish. A big wine with depth and harmony. Best from 2013 through 2020.

    Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Bella's Garden is profoundly scented of blackberries, warm black plums and mulberries with an underlying earthiness plus hints of cinnamon stick, licorice and toast. Rich, ripe and concentrated on the full bodied palate, it is beautifully poised in the mouth with a medium level very fine tannins and crisp acid line framing the dense flesh and going into a long multi-layered finish.

    The Wine Advocate

    Glass-staining purple. Intense aromas of black and blue fruit preserves, incense and violets. Lush, palate-coating blueberry and cassis flavors show both power and verve, with peppery spices adding bite. Finishes sweet, floral and very long, with impressive precision.

    A most deserving resident at the top of Wine Spectator's list. Don't be silly and drink this wine now. I've indulged with the 2007, 2009, and 2010 vintages this year (2013). The 2010 is quite tight and primary now, dominated by dark fruits and spices. Only the 2007 has had sufficient time to develop into (most) of its extravagant, complex glory. This wine won't really strut its stuff until 2016 and should drink better than the 2007 when the time strikes...one of my favorite wines of all time.

    Wow! It needs a little time (which will require a lot of discipline). It explodes with flavor from start to finish. Few wineries are this consistent from year to year.
