"A beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon from Bello, the 2013 (a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot aged 22 in 100% new French oak) has an opaque, dense ruby/purple color, a classic sweet nose of sweet blackcurrants, licorice and suite background oak. Rich, broad and flavorful, with sweet tannin, good acidity and a long finish, this is accessible, but should age effortlessly for 20 or more years."

Product Description:

"Rutherford dust typicity, beautiful opaque, dense ruby/purple color, a classic sweet nose of blackcurrants, licorice and sweet oak. Elegant fresh raspberry, blueberry and cherry notes carry through the mid pallet. The wine finishes with long velvety sweet tannin, bitter sweet chocolate and raspberry. Rich, broad and flavorful with good acidity, the wine is accessible, but should age effortlessly for 20 or more years.

Winemaker Ross Wallace comes to Bello from tenures as winemaker cult-favorite Bryant Family Vineyards in St. Helena, as well as positions at other well-regarded Napa Valley wineries including Laird Family Estate, Nickel and Nickel Vineyards, Grgich Hills Estate, and Groth Vineyards as well as Craggy Range Winery in New Zealand.
