2013 Bell Cabernet Sauvignon, Clone 4

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

This 100% Clone 4 Cabernet Sauvignon is rich, dark and deep in color. Sweet black fruits dominate the nose with a molasses, earthy, moss note. On the palate the wine is broad and fleshy. It coats the palate with a black fruit compote, white pepper and fig notes. The fruit-driven finish lingers long, evolving with a graphite minerality. Intense and impeccably well-balanced, this wine is a purely hedonistic cabernet experience.
