The partners of Far Niente and Nickel and Nickel truly do make a Bella Union, which resulted in a beautiful Cabernet. Sourced from fruit grown in the heart of Rutherford near Bella Oaks Lane, the wine is a nod to the historic Bella Union Roadway and Bella Union Mining Company, both Napa Valley strongholds in the 1880s. The label is befittingly, a nod to Art Nouveau, and quite eye catching. The wine itself is deliciously condensed and floral, lush and aromatic, with notes of dark cherry and tobacco leaf, and fine, dusty tannins unique to Rutherford.
