Tasting Notes and Description
Tasting Notes For Bella Union Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
A temperate spring brought about a normal budbreak and even development of our vines as they flowered and approached fruit set. Summer was warm, allowing continued development of our fruit, before an early September heat spike that helped our fruit accelerate their growth. A cooler end to September allowed for continued even ripening and additional hangtime allowing flavors to further develop. Malbec and Merlot were brought in first, followed by Cabernet Franc, and finishing up with Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot coming in shortly afterwards.
The 2017 Bella Union is filled with luscious aromas of cherry cola, anise, and baking spices. Tension is exhibited on the palate as this wine is both fruit forward and restrained. Black cherry, blueberry and other briary fruit flavors guide the wine’s bright midpalate, finishing with hints of cocoa and resolved tannins.
