Wine Review: This tasty dark ruby colored red blend was a new discovery for me at this years WBC. It opens with an attractive black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, very smooth, and elegant. The flavor profile is a blend of blueberry and black cherry. The finish is dry and its fine tannins are nicely prolonged. Pair this attractive red with grilled barbecue short ribs and enjoy. Cheers - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Bella's Blend is a soft, elegant wine that will complement any cuisine. The wine was aged in 100% French oak barrels (33% new). Course filtered with pink earth, it opens with plum and black cherry aromas and finishes with supple cinnamon and cedar tannins.
