Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
62% Cab Franc, 31% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot
This, of all our 2007s, takes the most time to open up in the glass or decanter. Initially reticent, Bel Canto blossoms into a perfumed potpourri of baking spice, black fruit and intense minerality. It has the roundest mouthfeel and softest tannins of all the 2007s, though the tannins have a sneaky length, fine grain and expanding quality through the finish that bodes well for aging. I believe this is our finest Bel Canto to date; a wine that will reward patience and time in your cellar.
"Good full red with ruby highlights. Knockout nose combines sappy black cherry, redcurrant, black tea, mocha and rose petal. Wonderfully intense but light on its feet, with enticing floral lift and outstanding verve to the red berry and brown spice flavors. Quite horizontal on the back but without any impression of weight. Finishes with very refined tannins and lovely lavender lift and persistence. A great showing-and all the more remarkable considering that Ben Smith and Gaye McNutt's vineyard on Red Mountain was only planted in 2004. There are any number of powerhouse Bordeaux blends being made in Washington today, but very few wines with this degree of class."

"Cabernet Franc blended with 31% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot, the Cadence 2007 Cara Mia Vineyard Bel Canto is pungently redolent of arbor vitae, juniper berry, mint, fennel, and sage, which as a sort of herbal liqueur join forces with cassis, blueberry, as well as honey or quince such as were also suggested in the corresponding 2008. Less polished than its two successors, this, nevertheless, displays a quality of tannin reasonably fine-grained and capable of adding a certain invigoration to a long finish."
