Quick Overview

Dark ruby color with aromas of red ripe fruit and toasted oak. The medium-body tannins and sweet oak give way to flavors of jammy blackberries and dark cherry. The layers of complexity in this blend are derived from grapes grown in selected vineyards in the Napa Valley. The Merlot adds to the midpalate adding richness, while the Syrah brings spice and rich fruit to the wine. Crafted in a rich, concentrated European style, this wine pairs well with flavorful, full-bodied meals, and will develop a harmonious smoothness with age.
Bell Cabernet Sauvignon

Details

The 2015 vintage was characterized by cooler than normal growing conditions resulting in a later than usual start of the harvest. Rainfall returned in 2014 after three dry years, pushed bud break, flowering and fruit-set back by at least two weeks at the front end of the growing season, and due to the cloud cover, there was fortunately no frost damage in 2014. Veraison was two to three weeks later than usual, and the cool weather continued during the summer. A two-day heat spike in late August (the only one of the season!) caused some sunburn damage, especially in vineyards where aggressive leaf removal had recently been undertaken in anticipation of a late, wet harvest. The long, cool growing season resulted in concentrated fruit flavors, great natural acidity and flavors that will materialize into elegant, structured wines, almost European in style. A very promising vintage for our style of wines. The 2015 Napa Valley Cabernet is a wonderful example of why Napa Valley is a great place to grow the red Bordeaux varietals. Dark ruby color with aromas of red ripe fruit and toasted oak. The medium-body tannins and sweet oak give way to flavors of jammy blackberries and dark cherry. The layers of complexity in this blend are derived from grapes grown in selected vineyards in the Napa Valley. The Merlot adds to the midpalate adding richness, while the Syrah brings spice and rich fruit to the wine. Crafted in a rich, concentrated European style, this wine pairs well with flavorful, full-bodied meals, and will develop a harmonious smoothness with age. Excellent today, the wine will also reward those with the patience to cellar it.
