Bella Grace 2013 Estate Zinfandel
Alc: 14.3% | Type/Varietal: Zinfandel - Red
This is a young, assertive Zinfandel. The color is dark garnet or pigeon ruby red with great clarity and medium body which will develop over the next two or three years. The wine displays bright tannins in the front of the palate, softening to cherries with a hint of smoke, wood and tobacco. On the finish you will notice a dark, rich plum characteristic. Good now but outstanding in 2 to 3 years.

Bella Grace 2015 Grenache Blanc
Alc: 12.2% | Type/Varietal: Grenache Blanc - White
The light straw color of this wine belies the richness that awaits. It has a full body with good acidity. Flavors of citrus and green apple dominate. A rich mouth feel is present with the vibrancy that the solid acids provide. The long smooth finish is enhanced with a hint of lime zest and slight minerality.
Bella Grace 2015 Sauvignon Blanc
Alc: 13.2% | Type/Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc - White
The color “is pale - Maine-in-the-wintertime pale - with a nose as fresh and grassy as a new-mown lawn. It’s close to being New Zealand grassy, but the aromas stay completely herbal and don’t get into the kitty box area. On the palate, limes and lemons dominate with a very slight nod to California ripeness. Minerals are readily apparent and the acidity is zippy, but not bracing.” Randy Fuller’s, NowandZin.com
