2013 Bell Talianna, 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
The blending of two family names is echoed by blending grapes from our two favorite vineyards. The incomparable strength and complexity of our Clone six Cabernet Sauvignon is softened and made more approachable at a young age by the addition of our Canterbury Syrah.  The Syrah adds suppleness and a dried spice characteristic to the Clone six, and the marriage makes an absolutely exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon. Delicious fruit concentration with eucalyptus, grated nutmeg, and cigar box are evident on the nose. It is unctuous and broad on the palate, showcasing many layers of earthy fruit, herbs, crushed rock and exotic spice. This particular vintage is beautifully open now, but will certainly develop great character with maturity in the bottle.
