Bella Grace Old Vine Zinfandel 2016
|Region||California, Sierra Foothills, Amador County|
Bella Grace's Old Vine Zinfandel tradition continues with grapes sourced again from the100+ year old vineyard at the Crain-Sleeper Ranch. Our 2016 OVZ has a beautiful, rich magenta color with subtle hints of cherry and other red fruit on the nose. Across the palate, the red fruit theme continues with bright cherry, soft oak tannins and white pepper. Enjoy the long, lush finish with or without a rich chocolate dessert or tangy cheese!
This silky but full-bodied wine was made from a non-irrigated, 50-year-old vineyard. It tastes ripe and generous, offering ample berry aromas and grapey plummy flavors. It's big and mouthcoating but not very tannic, keeping the texture smooth and soft.
Crisp and zesty, with easygoing cherry, pepper and smoky herb flavors. Drink now through 2023. 1,200 cases made.
