2013 Bell Cabernet S., Napa Valley, Reserve - 1.5L

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 Reserve Cabernet is our finest Bordeaux blend, hand selected from the finest barrel lots.  Deep in color, with a lovely ruby edge and rich, ripe fruit aromas.  The wine opens up with classic Bordeaux aromas of cassis, granite and rich black fruits.  On the palate the wine is silky and polished, with a beautiful integration of acidity and tannin that presents harmony and definition of flavor.  The finish is long and persistent, with flavors of sweet black fruit, nutmeg, dusty white pepper and a gorgeous austerity. The wine’s layers of complexity reflect the diversity of Napa Valley’s many microclimates. Crafted in a rich, concentrated European style, this wine pairs well with flavorful, full-bodied meals, and will reward those with the patience to cellar it.
