Deep, ripe, soft texture and a brooding character describes the Bella Zinfandel “Hills and Benches” 2012. Smell and taste dark cocoa, Ruby Port, cracked black pepper, rosemary and fennel along with cooked blackberries and candied ginger. Low tannins, satin texture and a strong, potent finish. This is a Zinfandel for stews, smoky foods and caramelized root vegetables. It’s refreshing to see a high-quality Zinfandel producer offering its 2012s as current releases.
