Retrospective - Cadence Bel Canto 2004

Bel Canto is Cadence Winery’s top end red wine. The 2004 vintage is a blend of ten different barrels from Cadence’s impeccable Red Mountain vineyard sources (Ciel du Cheval, Klipsun, and Taptiel). Starting with the 2006 vintage, Cadence began using fruit from its Cara Mia Vineyard on Red Mountain for the Bel Canto. Winemaker Ben Smith has always had a strong interest in Cabernet Franc which composes a full fifty percent of this wine.

Cadence Bel Canto Red Mountain 2004

Lots of black licorice and bright cherry on the nose. A perfect amount of grip and texture on the taste with chocolate threads winding through the wine. An impressively long finish caps it off. 50% Cab Franc, 40% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot. 14.4% alcohol. 250 cases produced.

$55
