Of Bell Mountain Ranch’s 55 acres of vines, 50% are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, a testament to our passion for this grape.  Our vineyards are situated in the southeast corner of Alexander Valley at the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountain Range giving us well-drained, gravelly-clay soil with a compacted layer of volcanic ash underneath.  This location has the hot Alexander Valley summers combined with cool nights which is just what the Cabernet Sauvignon grape is looking for to maximize sugar, acid, and tannin development. 

The 2019 Bell Mountain is filled with aromas of savory herbs, roasted coffee beans, and cocoa powder. A classic Cabernet with vibrant acidity and flavors of blueberry shortcake, sweet cherry, and rhubarb pie. The smooth tannins create an elegant leathery textured wine that screams for good food alongside.

Vintage

2019 offered nearly ideal growing conditions: a warm spring with some later rainfall set us up for good early season growth which was followed by a moderately warm summer that lasted well into October without any severe temperatures or untimely rainfall. These conditions allowed for a classic vintage.
