AWARDED 2012 GOLD MEDAL IN TEXAS!!!
A complex wine that has the distinct berry profile of Bella Vista Vineyard fruit. Blackberry, raspberry, blueberry are abundant with hints of blackcurrant (cassis). This wine is ready now with grilled meats or can be laid down for another 5 to 7 years as it approaches its peak.
Tasting Notes from the 2011 California Cab Shootout: Toast, brown sugar, raspberry, red currant, wet autumn leaves... layered with hints of cedar in the glass. Black cherry and vanilla on the palate. Everything is proportional in the right place. Balanced and complex. - 92 pts.
