K&L Notes

Bella Union was founded in 2012 by the owning partners of Far Niente and Nickel & Nickel. The grapes are sourced from a 25-acre Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard in Rutherford along Bella Oaks Lane. Winery Notes: "Located in Rutherford along Bella Oaks Lane "hallowed ground for Napa Valley Cabernet" the 25-acre Bella Union Vineyard is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, with a small portion devoted to Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. This western bench location offers an ideal combination of cool evenings and warm afternoons, which, in turn, allows the grapes to ripen fully and evenly. The site’s well-draining, gravelly loam soil plays an equally important role, contributing to the signature character of the vineyard. The fruit is intense, beautifully proportioned and complex with aromatic ripe plum, black cherry and currant flavors."

    Here's a chance to grab some seriously pedigreed, high-end Napa Cab at a very reasonable price. Bella Union is a relatively new label from the folks at Nickel & Nickel / Far Niente. The wine comes predominantly from a vineyard on the famed Bella Oaks Lane in Rutherford that is hallowed ground for Napa Cabernet. This bottling shows the quality of the fruit and wine making perfectly; a highly polished, rich, expressive wine with lashings of ripe plum, blackcurrant, smoky spices, loamy earth and dry tobacco. Hints of freshly picked bay leaf and dried herbs linger with the black and blue fruits on the long finish. There's tannin here but its very refined with exotic tones of quality oak smoothing everything out. Fans of Nickel & Nickel and Far Niente's $100+ bottlings take note of this relative bargain with an impressive 95 point write up. This costs $80 from the winery...our price is too good to show, so we have this one on our Insider's Advantage program.
