"An inky purple hue. A super nose of blackberry, toasty vanilla oak, black cherry and kirsch. Well layered fruits on the palate that are mouth watering including blackberry pie, black cherry, blueberry, vanilla oak, and anise with dark chocolate, and baking spices."

What makes this wine so special is that it is their Signature Reserve and the first one made by winemaker Kelly Woods. It is also from the highly regarded Triere Vineyard, which is where the Oak Knoll and Mt. Vedeer districts meet in Napa Valley. This fall I met with the highly regarded owners of this marquee Napa Valley vineyard to sample this solid wine from the memorable 2012 vintage. The family has been making wines in Napa since the early 70s and their wines are well made, complex and full of character. The Bell Canyon Signature Reserve 2012 Napa Valley Estate Red is a blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Malbec. It spent 22 months in new and neutral oak. While it will drink well for several more years, it’s hard not to resist enjoying it now. An inky purple hue. A super nose of blackberry, toasty vanilla oak, black cherry and kirsch. Well layered fruits on the palate that are mouth watering including blackberry pie, black cherry, blueberry, vanilla oak, and anise with dark chocolate, and baking spices. Pair with Cajun steaks, hearty chicken dishes, Irish stew, Portobello mushrooms and game meats.

Signature Reserve Napa Estate Vineyards Red Blend 2012
 
Tasting Notes
Bright and integrated aromas of blueberry, dark fruits, and vanilla wood spice. Soft, smooth, and full palate with cherry, blueberry, blackberry, and cola flavors. Delicious and promising in its youth- it may be best from 2015 to 2018. (Tasted the 12th of December 2014. 14.40% ABV)    
 
Winemaker Notes
All the fruit was grown responsibly on vineyards that are family owned and operated. This is a blend made for quality up front and versatility. To do this, we kept the tannins soft from the hillside fruit, maintaining their complexity and used benchland fruit for a generous palate. We further softened the wine and added complexity with 22 months of oak barrel aging in a traditional fashion
