Bella Union Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 1.5ltr
The 2016 Bella Union Cabernet Sauvignon opens with inviting aromas of black cherry, dark plum, blueberry, and cassis with intimations of warm oak, vanilla, and baking spices. Expansive, fruit-forward plum, black cherry and blueberry flavors coat the midpalate, followed by notes of toasted oak, cinnamon and nutmeg. Supple tannins and bright acidity pave the way to a mouthwatering finish.
Starting its Rutherford AVA base, the 2016 Bella Union Cabernet Sauvignon partners of Far Niente have brought together nuances that make up the best of the Napa Valley. This wine is plush, beautiful, and structured. Its aromas and flavors of black fruit, dust, and pencil lead are so “Napa Valley.” Pair it with a thick and juicy grilled Porterhouse steak.
Bella Union was founded in 2012 by the owning partners of Far Niente and Nickel & Nickel. The grapes are sourced from a 25-acre Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard in Rutherford along Bella Oaks Lane.
Winery Notes: “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 flavors.
