Bella Union Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

$79.99

New release!                                 New from the folks at Far Niente, Bella Union is their inaugural Cabernet Sauvignon from Rutherford. The 2015 Bella Union offers inviting bright red cranberry, raspberry, boysenberry, dark plum and earth aromas, married with vanilla spice, toast, warm caramel and coffee aromas. The palate expands with concentrated, dark red fruit, black cherry, boysenberry and plum. On the finish, the palate gives way to warm toasted flavors complemented by toffee and coffee notes. This well-balanced wine is structured from start to finish with an enchanting texture that lingers through to completion. Located in Rutherford along Bella Oaks Lane—hallowed ground for Napa Valley Cabernet—the 25-acre Bella Union Vineyard is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, with a small portion devoted to Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. This western bench location offers an ideal combination of cool evenings and warm afternoons, which, in turn, allows the grapes to ripen fully and evenly. The site’s well-draining, gravelly loam soil plays an equally important role, contributing to the signature character of the vineyard. The fruit is intense, beautifully proportioned and complex with aromatic ripe plum, black cherry and currant flavor

Good vintage. Well made wine. Pure, laser-focused. Displays weight, texture, sweetness, and a sense of place, driven by its minerality.

Deep Ruby with aromas of ripe dark fruits, pepper spice and cedar notes. A Far Niente offering aged for 16 months in 60% new French osk. On the palate flavors of black cherry, ripe plum and blackberry with notes of cacao and espresso. Fine structured tannins with good acidity on long finish ending with integrated fruit, spice and toasty oak character.

Great value from the makers of Far Niente and N&N. Very dark, black cherry, strawberry, oak. Not super ripe fruit which is nice. Minimal earth and spice. Opens up nicely.

Big jammy fruit forward cab, powerful, love it! Partial to the 2014 but that may be just another year of aging.
