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.
RELEASING TO CLUB IN NOVEMBER
Our Sauvignon Blanc is a stunner, offering a balance of power and finesse that truly reflects the vintage. It shows up-front aromas of orange blossom, grapefruit, and honeysuckle. On the palate, flavors of stone fruit, apricot, and lemon custard.
Our Chardonnay offers upfront citrus elements of lemon and orange blossom, and aromas of pear and apple. On the palate the wine shows bright refreshing acid, minerality, and flavors of lemon pie with a rich buttery crust, which begs for a second sip.
RELEASING TO CLUB IN SEPTEMBER
This Cabernet-based blend offers ample fruit aromas of black cherry, blackberry, and blood orange, supported by intriguing notes of sage, black olives, and licorice. On the palate we find firm tannins and lively acid with a cocoa powder finish and a lingering note of violets.
Our aromatic Rosé provides an initial impression of white flower perfume, followed by aromas of watermelon, strawberry, and white peach. On the palate we find bright berry flavors and seamless acidity. The wine is expansive without being overpowering.
