2016 Right Bank Red

2016 Right Bank Red

Our Right Bank Red is bright, young, and lively. It offers primary aromas of white flowers and raspberry with hints of leather, cinnamon, and a background of sweet oak.

SOLD OUT

 

Our Small Lot Collection wines are the result of years of experience tasting the mosaic of different and distinct individual blocks on our Bell Mountain Estate ranch. As we cull through and taste each lot, specific micro blocks speak to us. These limited offerings are handcrafted with our 100% estate-grown organic grapes that benefit from our sustainable farming approach.

A feature that originally attracted Founders Chris James and Ames Morison to this unique piece of property was the similar characteristics it shared with France's Bordeaux region. As a nod to that area and its style, our Right Bank wine was created. As is tradition, Cabernet Franc is a principal component of the blend.

The 2016 Right Bank Red is bright, young, and lively. It offers aromas of white flowers and raspberry with hints of leather, cinnamon, and a background of sweet oak. The wine offers plenty of acidity and concentration with velvety tannins. Full-bodied, our Right Bank Red finishes with notes of toffee and cinnamon to remember it by. The structure and acid of this wine would make it pair beautifully with roasted duck. 

Vintage
The 2016 vintage began with a warm spring and some late rains that gave us an early budbreak and enough water to provide good early season vine growth despite being in the tail end of a severe drought. June and July were warmer than usual, but when we approached the key ripening months of August and September, the weather cooled significantly, allowing a slow approach to maturity. These conditions favor good fruit development without excessively high alcohol. Exactly the kind of wine we love to make.
