Winemaker's Notes

Bel Canto, n. a. A style of singing characterized by beauty of tone rather than dramatic power [Italian, literally: beautiful singing], b. Cadence blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot grown on its estate, Cara Mia Vineyard.

Critical Acclaim

"Good medium red. Stunning high-pitched perfume of strawberry, cherry, rose petal and pepper. Then dense, round, thick and seamless, with highly concentrated flavors of red berries, flowers and spices. Manages to be wonderfully silky and taut at the same time, thick yet weightless from start to very long finish. This wonderfully perfumed wine displays even sweeter tannins than the Ciel du Cheval bottling. It may not be quite as velvety as the outstanding 2009 version but it offers great aromatic character and energy and is a superb reflection of its cooler year. I look forward to revisiting this beauty in six or seven years."
94 Points

"The 2010 Bel Canto Cara Mia Vineyard is a Cabernet Franc-dominated blend that also incorporates 15% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot. Showing a deep, ripe bouquet of mulled black fruits, toast, underbrush, mineral and assorted baking spice aromas and flavors, it flows onto the palate with a full-bodied, textured mouthfeel, excellent acidity and firm yet sweet tannin that lends focus and length on the finish. It will be better in 2-3 years and shine for 5-7 years after that."
