2014 Bell Talianna, Napa Valley

Vintage Notes
For the third year in a row, Napa Valley experienced an exceptional vintage and near drought conditions.  Though the drought continued to concern us throughout the growing season, between 11 and 17 inches of rain fell in the critical months of February and March, coming at the right time to provide the necessary water needed for a fairly smooth growing season.  The warm winter resulted in an early bud break. July’s relatively low temperatures were coupled with high humidity during the summer, heightening rot and mildew concerns.  The relatively cool summer slowed down sugar accumulation to achieve perfect ripeness at lower sugar levels. The growing season provided numerous challenges – our third consecutive drought year, the South Napa earthquake in August, and late season hail.  Our harvest started about two weeks early, the earliest since 2004, with vines yielding loose clusters of small, intensely flavored berries.  The resulting wines have deep color, rich fruit flavors and a wonderful, supple texture on the palate.

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.  Attractive deep plum red, full to the rim with an opaque center in the glass. Bright red fruit shows on the palate, cherry and strawberry highlights, with hints of anise and cassis.  The oak seamlessly supports the fruit, with a clean, sweet note.  High toned and elegant, this wine is very concentrated on the tongue, with a very long finish.  This rich, complex wine will continue to evolve for years to come.
