2015 Two Row Proprietor's Cuvee
2015 Two Row Proprietor's Cuvee

Bella Vineyards Two Row Proprietor's Cuvee is a blend of all seven pinot noir clones that were picked and fermented simultaneously . By doing so, you will taste the entire vineyard in one offering. Varietal, clones, elevations, fruit ripeness, soil profiles, aspect, rootstocks and most of all “mother nature” are expressed. A lavender nose and layered flavors of licorice, cinnamon, and fig on the palate. Succulent red cherries wash the entire mouth ending with a bright warm finish. Yep that’s it. Enjoy with poultry, pork tenderloin, and caramel desserts. Drink now through 2018.

Tasting notes

Bella Vida Vineyard in a Bottle

Production notes

This is a field blend of all 7 of the clones of Pinot Noir Bella Vida has planted in the vineyard.

All grapes come from just 2 rows of the vineyard

Hightened attention and extra hand work in the vineyard are given to these two rows to produce some of Bella Vida's most prized fruit.

Fermantations are done at Domino IV winery and overseen by Patrick Reuter.  Patrick is encouraged to co-ferment different clones of Pinot Noir from different parts of the vineyard to create a field blended Pinot Noir.

Since we are farmers at Bella Vida, it is our belief that this is our best attempt to capture Bella Vida Vineyard in a bottle.
