2012 Bell Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley - 1.5L

Vintage Notes
The 2012 growing season in Napa Valley was about as perfect as it could be for grape growing. An abundant grape crop gave winemakers the opportunity to take only the best fruit. Our mild spring led to a pageant of spring bud break, steady flowering, and even fruit set.  A long stretch of summer days that grapes love - wide temperature swings, from the low 50s at night to the mid 80s during the day - gave them a chance to ripen slowly and evenly. Light rains held off until after the grapes arrived on the crush pad. This vintage will certainly be remembered as one of the very best ever for the Napa Valley.

Tasting Notes
Our 2012 Cabernet sauvignon is a wine that derives its complexity from the blending of six grape varietals.  In the glass, the wine shows its dark ruby color while aromas of cassis and dark berries rise up to your nose.  Deep in color, the nose opens with ripe red fruit, dried herb, and granite.  The palate is rich, round and mouth filling with firm tannins and a great structure.  Addition of Syrah softens the apparent tannins on the leading edge of the wine, allowing the fruit to shine.  The end result is a supple, elegant wine that pairs well with a wide array of foods from grilled meats, roasted vegetables or pizza.
