As Winemaking tastes each individual lot of wine from the myriad of distinct blocks on our Bell Mountain Estate ranch, they discover that certain parts of the vineyard are best as components for limited production blends. These micro blocks are identified and, over time and experimentation, they become part of our Small Lot Collection. These wines are 100% estate-grown, organic, and initially released to our Wine Club Members before being made available online or at our Tasting Room.
Building off the stellar 2013 and 2014 vintages, this wine offers inviting aromatics of blackberry and blueberry with underlying notes of cinnamon and lavender. On the palate, the wine is rich and complex with firm tannins that slowly resolve into a smooth and harmonious sensation.
The wine offers a trifecta of ripe fruity aromas - blackberry, blueberry, and cherry - supported by flavors of tobacco, cocoa, caramel, and spice. The judicious use of American oak adds a bit more espresso notes to the profile.
Offers primary aromas of purple plums with hints of floral perfume, cloves, sea spray, and fresh herbs. The Cabernet Sauvignon component of this blend provides a solid tannin framework that supports flavors of espresso, ripe cherry, and rosemary, followed by a lingering finish. 90pts Robert Parker's - The Wine Advocate
Our Malbec offers the heady aroma of white flowers and ripe blue and black fruit, with hints of cinnamon, white pepper, and leather. On the palate we find distinct flavors of dark chocolate and boysenberry.
Our 2016 Moss Oak Pinot Noir offers aromas of tobacco leaf, Assam tea, and rose petals. The entry is sweet, round, and juicy, with a velvety smooth texture, offering flavors of black cherry, strawberry, and forest floor earthiness.
Offers aromas of concentrated Meyer lemon, honeysuckle, orange blossom honey, and freshly greated ginger. On the palate, we find an intriguing blend of flavors of honey and Bosc pear with a citrus rind finish that is a result of the extra hangtime.
Serve it slightly chilled and see how the flavors and aromas develop as the glass warms.
