Winestyr Review

Built by grapes harvested from the family estate in Rutherford, situated in the heart of the Napa Valley floor, this is Chris Bello's benchmark wine. There is certainly a trademark of the family's wines here with a densely packed palate of rich black currant and huckleberry but also a textbook balancing act of oak spice and fine tuned tannins. The wine spent 22 months in 100% new French oak barrels and should be decanted upon service.

What We Love

  • Rutherford AVA
  • Family's estate vineyard

Perfectly paired with high end, dry aged meats or for gifting to that special someone in your life.

Experience

In 2000, Michael Bello purchased a piece of prime real estate located in the Napa Valley’s Rutherford Bench district. He set about constructing a French farmhouse with materials imported from France, incorporating details that had never been seen before in Napa Valley. His dream to produce a quality boutique Cabernet Sauvignon was set in motion. Bello Family Vineyards now produces an impressive lineup of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sparkling wine each year.
