Bell Mountain Starter Pack
Our Starter Pack truly represents what Bell Mountain Ranch can offer. It includes one bottle each of our 2018 Sauvignon Blanc, 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2016 Snakepit Red.
2018 Sauvignon Blanc
The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is a stunner, offering a balance of power and finesse that really highlights our unique location. It shows up-front aromas of orange blossom, grapefruit, and honeysuckle with a hint of star anise. On the palate, flavors of stone fruit, apricot, and lemon custard predominate. The wine takes its time to come to a long finish with tangerine, lemon zest, and key lime notes that seamlessly wrap together with a touch of minerality. The overall effect is creamy with a harmonious balance of acidity and structure.
2014 Cabernet Sauvignon - 92pts Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
On the palate the wine is big, but not overbearing in oak or tannin; the big solid structure has rounded edges of soft chewy tannin for a wine this young. Flavors of deep, dark blueberry, blackberry, and black raspberry give it a wild “brambliness” that we like and the intense minerality is reflective of our estate. The finish leaves a lasting impression of sweet, toasty oak. Delicious now, this wine will also age beautifully and continue to improve over the next 10 years.
81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot, and 8% Merlot
2016 Snakepit Red
The 2016 Snakepit Red shows aromas of voluminous purple fruit, blueberry, and black currant with a hint of caramel, reminiscent of a warm summery berry preserve. On the palate we find blackberry acidity balanced with great structure provided by soft, polished tannins. Delicious now, this wine will age well for eight to ten years. But we can’t wait that long.
78% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Petit Verdot
