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.
On the palate passion fruit and lemon peel flavors are balanced by lively acids leading to a sleek mineral finish with a silky texture.
This Merlot-based rosé shows ample aromas of raspberry and strawberry with notes of confectioner’s sugar and baking spice.
This wine is rich, dense, and the palate follows through on the nose’s promise. Aromatics of chocolate-covered cherries, black licorice, and rosemary predominate. There is good strength up front with flavors of cranberry, black cherry, dried black tea leaves, and a touch of graphite. It is refreshing and has a juicy mid-palate with a vanilla coffee toffee finish. The tannins are seamlessly integrated making this wine a classic example of why a blend can be so good.
92pts Robert Parker’s -The Wine Advocate
This wine begins with warm, inviting aromas of blueberry and blackberry, surrounded by a hint of lavender, blood orange, and cedar.
Our 2012 vintage, the first in three years, has a zesty acidity that is the ideal counterpoint to its natural residual sugar. The wine has flavors of white peach, tropical fruit, ripe lemon, and orange blossom honey.
Serve slightly chilled to experience how the flavors and aromas develop as the glass warms. The perfect way to end a scrumptious meal.
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.”
