Bella Union

bella union cabernet sauvignon 2018 750ml

$79.99

Now in its seventh vintage, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon from exceptional vineyard blocks across the Napa Valley develops texture and richness in the glass, sip after sip. It is, indeed, a beautiful union.

 

VINEYARD DESCRIPTION
Bella Union was founded by the partners of Far Niente to specialize in the art of blending Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The cornerstone of the blend is our 25-acre vineyard in Rutherford, along Bella Oaks Lane, a country road that was historically called Bella Union. The vineyard is planted primarily to Cabernet Sauvignon in well-drained loam, and the vines range from 20 - 30 years of age. Classic varietals of Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot sourced from select Napa Valley vineyards complete the blend.

TASTING NOTES
With its blackberry patch aromatics followed by hints of raspberry preserves and accents of leather, there’s a ripe, pure fruit quality to this stunning new vintage. Generous layers of red fruit flavors fill the entry while subtle cocoa and baking spice undertones linger on the midpalate. Resolved tannins enhance the almost-velvety texture throughout the entire wine, and fresh botanical notes add vibrance to a finish that is at once long, luscious and lifted

 

CRITICAL ACCLAIM

WE93, Wine Enthusiast

"An array of bright red fruit with herbal undertones opens the way to a core of grippy concentration and powerful ripeness in this ageworthy wine. The tannins are structured and considerable. Best After 2028.:"

 

WW92, Wilfred Wong of Wine.com

"COMMENTARY: The 2018 Bella Union by Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon is layered and smooth on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine shines with aromas and flavors of blackcurrants, some red fruits, and a trace of oak. Serve it with a grilled ribeye. (Tasted: December 4, 2021, San Francisco, CA)"
