2012 Bella, Barrel 32 Zinfandel. Bottle 53/2400. Deep purple coloration. On the nose cherry, red berries, vanilla, cherry cola and tobacco. On the palate the wine is lush, smooth and full bodied with medium, nicely balanced tannins. Notes of spice, plum, cherry and earth are present. The finish is long with cherry and vanilla.
