“Composed of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the 2016 Bello Cabernet Sauvignon is deep purple-black in color and features very youthful, primary blackcurrants, crushed blueberries and fresh black cherries scents with suggestions of cedar chest, roses and pencil shavings. Exhibits fantastic harmony, with the intense black fruit layers well supported by super ripe tannins, finishing very long and complex. Drink 2021-2045.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (10/18)
