2013 Bell Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

Vintage Notes
Our 2013 promises to be a glorious vintage for Napa. With a warm, dry spring, bud break occurred early, a couple weeks ahead of the norm. Spring was frost-free through flowering and the crop set with ideal conditions. Throughout the entire growing season, the valley saw moderate to warm temperatures with only one minor heat spike the end of June and beginning of July. An early harvest started in late July and accelerated in August.  September saw the arrival of two light, mid-month rains, but the following breezy, sunny weather quickly dried fruit allowing the late ripening Cabernet to hang without damage. Crop size was above-average.  The dry spring delivered small berries, which combined with the long, even summer temperatures has produced wines of exceptionally deep color, intense flavor and energetic acidity and freshness.

Tasting Notes
Our 2013 Cabernet sauvignon derives its complexity from the blending of five grape varietals.  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, paired with fine, yet lively, tannins.  The fruit-driven finish is smooth and very persistent, a nicely integrated example of classic Bell Cabernet, self-contained and beautifully framed by refined oak.  This supple wine is a luscious reflection of the summer’s moderate growing conditions and pairs well with a variety of foods, particularly roasted vegetables, grilled meats and pizza.
