2013 Bell Cabernet Sauvignon, Clone 6 - 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

Deep garnet in color, this wine opens with classic Clone 6 aromas of forest floor and intense dark fruit.  Entry is marked with concentrated fruit typical of the vintage, good acidity and supple tannins. The palate displays rich notes of black cherry, crushed herbs, and is very graceful.  The French oak aging is reflected in the well-integrated vanilla finesse.  The finish is long and elegant; aging will certainly bring additional focus to the wine and reward the patient wine drinker.
