Today, we are thrilled to offer you the impressive, delicious, elegant and impressive Bellacana Vineyards 2012 Alexander Valley Cabernet. This silky wine is loaded with rich flavors and dark aromas that will have you taking your time as you unpack all of its intriguing characteristics - both subtle and otherwise.

When our intrepid Agent Red discovered Bellacana, he was immediately struck by the rich and elegant style of their wines. He was also struck by the value that Bellacana’s wines deliver. If you’re looking for a big, elegant Cab that over delivers, you’ve found it in today’s wonderful wine… which was made by one of Agent Red’s very favorite winemakers; the masterful Miro Tcholakov. Like all of Miro’s wines, today’s is a ready-to-enjoy marvel that delivers a ton of fruit and gusto - at an affordable price.

Today’s wine is abundant and full on the nose with rich, ripe aromas of mixed berry compote, plum, wild raspberry, and cassis with cigar box, cherry cobbler, pie spice, chocolate and toasty oak.

Soft and silky on the palate, the wine ushers in rich and balanced flavors of Blackberry jam, cherry pie, raspberry, red currant, grilled plum, smoky cherry, spice box, tobacco, leather and soft spice.

Enjoy this highly recommended wine this Holiday season - and impress your fellow revelers with your great taste.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Darkest maroon hues, from the slightly lighter edges to the dark and slightly opaque core. After a good swirl, this wine clings to the glass wall for a spell before skinny, slow moving legs march downward.

Smell:

Mixed berry compote, plum, wild raspberry, and cassis with cigar box, cherry cobbler, pie spice, chocolate and toasty oak.

Taste:

Blackberry jam, cherry pie, raspberry, red currant, grilled plum, smoky cherry, spice box, tobacco, leather and soft spice.

Finish:

Very long and elegant, with concentrated fruit that takes a long time to tail off. Plush tannins make an appearance toward the end, giving the wine a rich and opulent feel.

Pairing:

Enjoy this silky and elegant Cabernet with your favorite red meat pairings. Can you get your hands on Waygu, Kobe or a nice filet mignon? Any of those would be great choices.
