Bella Union by Far Niente - Napa County - CA - 2017
750ML / 14.7% ABV
Style: The 2017 Bella Union is filled with luscious aromas of cherry cola, anise, and baking spices. Tension is exhibited on the palate as this wine is both fruit-forward and restrained. Black cherry, blueberry, and other briary fruit flavors guide the wine’s bright midpalate, finishing with hints of cocoa and resolved tannins.
Blend: 90.3% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4.2% Merlot, 2.5% Malbec, 1.6% Petit Verdot 1.4% Cabernet Franc
Vineyard: Bella Union specializes in the art of blending Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. It was founded in 2012 by the partners of Far Niente and Nickel & Nickel, who, for more than 30 years, have been growing, making and enjoying Napa Valley Cabernet. Bella Union is the natural next step in our evolution as Cabernet winemakers.
Wine & Dine: Some great choices as far as food pairings for this Cab would be prime rib, New York strip, and filet mignon.
