Wine Tasting Notes
The Napa Valley Cabernet sauvignon derives its complexity from the blending of five Bordeaux varietals and multiple terroirs, from the valley floor in Rutherford valley to the high elevation Mt. Veeder. In the glass, the wine shows its deep ruby color while aromas of red fruits and polished oak promise a voluptuous character. On the palate, the red fruits transition to elegant, mouth-filling dark fruits, baking spices and dried herbs. The fruit-driven finish is smooth and very persistent, a seamlessly integrated example of classic Bell Cabernet, restrained and beautifully framed by oak. This supple wine is a luscious reflection of the vintage's moderate growing conditions and pairs well with a variety of foods, particularly roasted vegetables, grilled meats and charcuterie.
