95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
We are exceptionally excited to reintroduce Bella Una with this 2014 vintage. “Bella Una” translated from Latin means beautiful together. Our winemaker selects barrels that reflect what he feels are the best expression of the vintage. Only Heirloom Pinot Noir clones from our Martaella Vineyard and our Tilton Hill Vineyard were chosen for this intense and dynamic Pinot Noir.
We decided to leave 35% of the clusters intact (whole-cluster) and fermentation was completed by indigenous yeast fermentation in open top tanks. Cold soaked for 8 days, indigenous yeast fermentation last for two weeks. Aged in 42% new French Oak barrels.
