“Bel Sogno” means Beautiful Dream, and this proprietary red blend is exactly that! This blend enchants in the glass like candlelight emanating from a cozy winter cabin. A masterful reduction of huckleberry and ripe Autumn currant salutes the palate before cascading into a silky finish of sour cherry and dark plum poured over rich vanilla custard. As a fireside companion on its own, the Bel Sogno proves a most welcome guest, and truly soars at the dinner table with slow-cooked bourguignon and creamy chanterelles.
This vintage captures the eye immediately with rich shades of shimmering garnet, and the payoff is even more alluring on the palette. Whispers of blackberry, gentle cedar, and cranberry announce this wine’s delectable presence, while the arrival of creamy, textured plum gives way to a gorgeous finish replete with seductive dark cherryand fulsome tannins. It is possible to taste the very essence of a jewel, and the 2015 “Rachael” pinot offers this experience in abundance!

Wait for the hint of caramel and cardamom spice at the finish that culminates in deliciously soft tannins.
