    Winemaker's Notes:

    Immediately upon opening Bel Canto leads with an intriguing, almost medicinal quality, tightly wound and razor sharp. Two hours of air soften the nose into red fruit, a host of baking spices, minerals and pencil lead. The texture of the palate is remarkably silken, given the firm acidity and present tannins. This is a Bel Canto for the cellar or long decanting.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Cara Mia Vineyard Bel Canto – with 25% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot blended into its Cabernet Franc – features mint chocolate, cassis, and an alluring amalgam of Chenin-like quince and flowers on a silken palate, finishing with soothing persistence if not quite the complexity or mineral dimension of the couple of best Cadence releases I tasted. Still, this is very pure-fruited; lovely in its gentle way; yet possessed of subtly vibratory energy, and might well acquire additional complexity...

    Dark red. Aromas of cherry, rose petal, marzipan and brown spices. Rich and lush but less fruit-driven than the Camerata, showing more savory mocha and chocolate earth tones and a bit less lift. With more granular tannins, this comes across as less sweet and a bit less refined today.
