Bell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, 2018

Produced by Medlock Ames

Our vineyards are situated in the southeast corner of Alexander Valley at the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountain Range giving us well-drained, gravelly-clay soil with a compacted layer of volcanic ash underneath. The wine encompasses a rich profile of summer ripe berries, cigar box, chocolate covered strawberries and blue fruits.

Sustainable Farming

Since the 1990’s we were pioneers in the area by farming organically with no artificial chemicals, fertilizers or pesticides used to grow our wines. Instead, we promote healthy, living soil that nurtures, feeds and protects our vines and embrace age-old, low impact farming methods like crop diversity allow the vineyard to shine through in the fruit.
