The 2017 Bella Union is filled with luscious aromas of cherry cola, anise, and baking spices. The wine coats the palate with black cherry, blueberry and other briary fruit. A nice weight to the midpalate and a cocoa laden tannic finish. After an hour in the decanter the wine will open up and be ready for your glass.
Sinewy, earthy and full of spice, this well-made wine is lush and sumptuous, with firm, focused tannins and integrated oak. Black cherry, cinnamon and nutmeg meld on the structured, full-bodied palate, with a graceful hint of dark chocolate on the finish. This will do well in the cellar; enjoy 2025–2030.
