2013 Bell Cabernet Sauvignon, Longtable Vyd - 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
Longtable Vineyard is our latest single-vineyard Cabernet sauvignon, showcasing the unique terroir of the Mt. Veeder appellation.  Opaque in the glass and dark in color, the brooding nose opens with black tea leaves, crushed lavender and sweet vanilla oak.  Smooth and voluptuous on the palate, the red and black fruits are rich and ripe and well integrated with the oak and mouthwatering acidity.  The tannins are beautifully integrated into the rich palate and lead to a long, persistent finish.  This wine will benefit from aging but promises true pleasure in drinking it now, showing all of its Napa Cabernet splendor!
