Bell Mountain Estate
Our Bell Mountain Estate ranch stretches from Alexander Valley in the north to Russian River Valley in the south and borders Chalk Hill. This unique site location, with less than 20% planted to vines, affords us a multitude of microclimates and well-drained, gravelly-clay soil with a compacted layer of volcanic ash underneath to grow our grapes. There’s a strong sense of place and personality in our estate wines…something that we pride ourselves on.
Our Sauvignon Blanc offers primary aromas of lemon flower perfume with notes of lemon meringue pie. On the palate, the wine shows laser-focused acidity and minerality, but is still quite round with good weight and richness. The finish lingers with a delicious hint of Anjou pear.
Our aromatic all-Merlot Rosé offers aromas of sweet tart, vanilla, with notes of strawberry and holiday spice. The wine's bright acids surround a well-balanced core and offer a refreshing finish.
The 2016 Chardonnay offers primary aromas of French vanilla, crème brulee, and red apple, with supporting notes of tropical fruit and honeysuckle. It has a rich umami palate with a long, round, mellow finish. It's hard to limit yourself to one glass!
This Merlot-based blend shows lovely, high-toned red fruit with hints of mocha, vanilla, and oak. On the palate, the wine is round, rich, and ripe, with solid structure and balanced acidity. Nicely developed tannins support a long, smooth finish.
On the palate, this wine offers bold, yet supple, tannins and balanced acidity with plenty of weight on the mid-palate. The tannins resolve into a harmonious finish with lingering flavors of fruit and milk chocolate.
This Dessert Wine is welcoming on the nose with aromatics of blueberry syrup and blackberry, followed by plush notes of cedar, golden raisins, stewed prunes, candied cordials, chocolate-covered orange, dried tea herbs, and hazelnut. If we had to describe it in one word, it would be “inviting.”
Only 50 cases made.
