About this wine

Rutherford dust typicity, beautiful opaque, dense ruby/purple color, a classic sweet nose of blackcurrants, licorice and sweet oak. Elegant fresh raspberry, blueberry and cherry notes carry through the mid pallet. The wine finishes with long velvety sweet tannin, bitter sweet chocolate and raspberry. Rich, broad and flavorful with good acidity, the wine is accessible, but should age effortlessly for 20 or more years.

Love Notes and High Praise

Napa Cabernet's are exceptional by nature. What Bello has done here is make a wine that far exceeds the high expectations of Napa. This wine is for those with discerning tastes and for those who demand the absolute best. Massive notes of dark fruits, a charming grip of tannins, and a long and exquisite finish. The lingering notes of cigars and cedar, dark chocolate, and fine spices are enticing. Near perfect to drink now I feel this wine could age for at least 10 years more and be considered a prize collection.

Meet the Winemaker

Michael Bello


Bello Family Vineyards

Legend has it that once a champion has a taste of success, settling for less is unacceptable. This clearly exemplifies Michael Bello. Emphasizing an unsurpassed level of hard work, quality and high ethical standards, Michael started his career with a residential construction company. Passionate about living life to the fullest, his remarkable business achievements enabled him to achieve two lifelong dreams; to own a champion racehorse and produce a champion Napa Valley wine. A master at attaining his goals, Michael’s dream to own a champion racehorse was realized in late 2001, when he purchased a small thoroughbred filly named Megahertz. Comparing the similarities of real estate development to wine making is a favorite subject for Michael, who enjoys managing the transformational process of building a seed into a beautiful wine. With a love for sharing the experience of making and enjoying wines with other people, Michael has never looked back since founding Bello Family Vineyards. He invites you to join him for a guided tour and, of course, a sample of some of the best that Napa has to offer.
