Bella Union Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Upon first sip, Bella Union offers exuberant plum and black cherry aromas, signature notes of the Bella Union Vineyard. The wine is luscious with supple tannins that provide a framework for longevity. The finish lingers with persistent fruit flavors and notes of toasty oak, black pepper and espresso bean.
Fermented in stainless steel, then aged 16 months in French oak (60% new), this wine is brightly aromatic in tones of cherry, cassis and spicy clove. Supple and integrated on the palate, it has depth at its core, with an intense ripe berry flavor.
A solid, chunky, chewy style that needs time, as the tannins are dry and savory, with dried berry, currant, anise and sage flavors in the mix. Drink now through 2030. 3,700 cases made.
